If eels weren't so darned tasty things like this wouldn't happen -- slithering around with those delicious bodies, wiggling their meat around all up in my face.

More like undocumented baby eels. No eel is illegal.

"Eel Wars," now playing on the History Channel

Believe it or not, the elver dispute is a huge deal in Maine. The guv'nah and the tribal councils are squaring off over licensing and catch limits. It's all over the news up here.

Who do you call if someone you know is possessed by eels?  Doesn't seem like this would be something handled by a Catholic priest.

SpikeStrip: what are the cops gonna do with the 35 pounds of eels valued at $70000?


I heard they were taking the 30lbs of eels (estimated value of $60k) to the local DNR who was going to put the $50k worth of eels into some holding tanks and ship the $30k worth of eels to Florida where authorities would release the $12K worth of eels back into the wild.
 
2013-04-09 07:47:16 AM
Was he taking them across state lines for immoral porpoises?
 
2013-04-09 07:47:40 AM
so a single baby eel is worth 1,073 jars of Nutella?

When you swim and you feel
Something nip at your heel,
That's a moray...

This is the kind of shiat that makes the Lacey act so scary.  This kind of thing can go federal, did you know that?  With regard to plants and animals, it is federally illegal to be unlawfully in possession of a plant or animal in violation of federal law...   or any state law...  or any Indian tribal law... OR any FOREIGN law.

I'm all for wildlife preservation, but this shiat is REALLY out of control.

As a Striped Bass fisherman I keep on wanting to jump in and say something but you guys are having way too much fun for me to try and explain it.

Carry on.  I enjoy the chuckle....

/will be singing "that's a moray" likely some late night in August on Joppa Flats

i remember seeing gordon ramsay cooking live elvers over a fire in a mesh basket, and i thought that was rather cruel. cruel, but probably tasty.

"82 grand?  Not bad, I guess."

"Marine Resources Commissioner Patrick Keliher says Parker faces up to a $2,000 fine if guilty. He says a bill now before the Legislature would make illegal possession of elvers a criminal offense, rather than a civil violation, to provide an added deterrent. "

SO.. 82,000 in potential sales vs 2000 dollars in fines... well, I can see that is quite the deterrent.

Eels do give a wicked rush when taken nasally.

You know how cops are with their 'estimates'.  Confiscate a pound of weed, with an estimated street value of a hundred-bajillion dollars.
