Abstract: A total of 1,722 immature eels of lengths 25 to 95 cm and ages 5 to 33 years were collected in summer by fyke netting. It was shown that migration upstream was very slow, few eels of less than 9 years old being found upstream of Lough Corrib. Eels of less than 50 cm fed mainly on invertebrates, larger individuals brcoming piscivorous. Differences in the diets in the various lakes were observed and some evidence of selective feeding was found.
