Abstract: A total of 843 immature eels of length 27 to 86 em and ages 5 to 28 years were collected in summer by fyke netting. The North Cavan eels formed a distinct population of large, fast-growing eels, most of which matured before 12 years. The eels of the other lakes were slower in growth and in maturing, substantial numbers of 13 years and older being found. Principal food organisms in the Cavan eels were fish and chironomid larvae; in Lough Gill fish for eels of over 50 cm and Gammarus and Ephemeroptera larvae for smaller; in Lough Conn, Gastropoda for all sizes.
