Farming exists independently of the natural process and in no way endangers their survival, see here: http://www.fao.org/fishery/culturedspec ... nguilla/en. The problems that eels face as a species have nothing to do with their commercial farming and appear to be, as far as can be determined, largely independent of human action, see here: http://www.theguardian.com/environment/ ... nvironment. Indeed it may well be in the future that, as with other endangered species, human sponsored reproduction to support wild stocks may prove crucial to their survival. So the fact that eels taste good may help their long term prospects.

I've heard of Roker but I don't know how wide spread the name is. I think it was the anglers from Liverpool who used to call them "M1 hedgehogs".
