The international EELRIC consortium has met for the 2nd EELRIC workshop on October 20 in Dubrovnik (Croatia).
Partners all presented their, mostly national, running projects and fundings; research progress; the current collaborations among EELRIC partners and perspectives, and leads for EELRIC funding. Presentations are available in the members area. Specifically, partners were asked to provide information which is often not found in the published papers including broodstock holding conditions, oocyte characteristics, timing of ovulation and egg release, hatching times and egg and larval rearing. By sharing this information and experiences among partners, research on the propagation of eel can take giant steps at a minimum input of effort!
