EEL: it can be said that all eels depend on sea life. Most eels do not travel long distances but hide among cracks in rocks or caves or crawl under the sand.
The investigation into how they live, where they lay eggs, and what life they live is still under way until now in 2019, which is why it is hard to find conditions to raise, and is also famous for being difficult to cultivate.
The current method of catching and cultivating fry is that only a small number of eggs survive and grow into fry, so the price is also expensive due to the lack of suppliers, which is showing signs of gradual resolution over time and technological advances.
