A type of fish that is characterized by a smooth, snakelike body. They are found in fresh water rivers and lakes in Europe and North America, but migrate to the southwestern Atlantic for spawning. The flavorful meat of the eel is popular in Europe and is especially popular in Japan and other Asian countries. It is not as popular in the United States even though it was a favorite among people during colonial times.
