I’m glad to find out after all the time that eels from Europe really do go to the Sargasso Sea!!!!
Scientists have unravelled a mystery surrounding one of nature’s most incredible journeys.
Every year, eels leave European rivers to travel in an epic migration to the Sargasso Sea in the North Atlantic to breed for a single time, then die.
Although this final destination has long been suspected, until now there has been no direct evidence.
By fitting eels with satellite tags, researchers have tracked the creatures on the final leg of the route.
