European eel (Anguilla anguilla L.) farming technologies in Europe and Japan : application of a comparative analysis.
Eel farming technologies developed in Japan and Europe are reviewed with reference to climatic and economic considerations. Technical aspects of water temp. and quality management and stock management for both regions are detailed and compared. A theoretical simulation is performed on the basis of the analyses to choose which technology is more suitable for the climatic and economic conditions of a French region. Prospects for eel farming in Europe are discussed.
