Suitcase to Hong Kong Big Business Baby Fish (4/5)
Available: 17/11/2017 to 05/07/2087
Traffickers smuggle live eels to Asia by the tonne via Hong Kong. Chinese aquaculture depends on fry imports from Europe as eels cannot be born in captivity. The baby eels are then fattened on Chinese fish farms and sold on at a profit. This explains, perhaps, the disappearance of eels from Europe’s rivers.
