Did you know that the European eel is among the most endangered species in Britain? A fish once so common and frequently caught in the River Thames to make eel pies and jellied eels, now faces near extinction. To draw attention to their significant decline, Somerset-based print-maker, Julia Manning, has made a series of striking prints, capturing the eel's incredible life-cycle from the deep blue waters of the Sargasso Sea to European freshwater and back again—drawing attention to the many environmental perils they now face to survive.
