Report to the European Commission in line with Article 9 of the Eel Regulation 1100/2007; Implementation of UK Eel Management Plans - SF0274

The Eel Regulation (1100/2007) required European Member States to establish Eel Management Plans to facilitate recovery of the European eel stock and to report on progress against these plans at prescribed intervals. Within the UK, 14 River Basin Districts (RBDs) have been established under these plans, and this UK-wide report outlines the monitoring undertaken within the various RBDs during the most recent three-year reporting period, and details the efficacy and outcome of the various actions taken to meet eel recovery targets.
