Eels occur in almost all river regions and have their general eel habitat there.
In addition, they also colonise corresponding lakes via tributaries where they reproduce.
Eel habitat: mud and roots
Eels like to hide in mud or between roots or stones and water plants within their natural habitat during the day.
In addition, the eel habitat is characterized by stagnant and flowing water. It likes to live in both types of water. Shelters are preferred by eels with soft bottoms.
Natural reproduction of eels is not possible in the Danube area. They are artificially introduced into the habitat. This is because the fish cannot migrate through the Black Sea.
