July 23, 2012 - Glass Eels

Transparent and needlelike glass eels rush into the estuary during winter, after a long-distance migration for months from the open sea.

I don't mind eels
Except at meals.
And the way they feels.

Sundae  Monday Jul 23 01:12 PM

Wouldn't get a decent sized portion of jellied eels out of that lot!

Nirvana  Monday Jul 23 02:20 PM

reminds me of a movie where this guy was fishing for eels with a horse head. GAK! Can't remember the name of the movie ...

glatt  Monday Jul 23 02:30 PM

The Tin Drum had a scene like that. Messed up movie.

I have had to fight to get some recent images to open, this one included.
I think I may have finally gotten it by enabling third party cookies.
Why should the IOTD need third party cookies?

Undertoad  Monday Jul 23 08:34 PM

I don't think this is anything Cellar-related. The image is hosted on so there are no third parties involved.

jimhelm  Monday Jul 23 09:08 PM

they look like the things from Matrx 2 or 3.

SPUCK  Tuesday Jul 24 06:22 AM

Glass eels.. Way classier than the common Plastic eels.

ZenGum  Tuesday Jul 24 06:58 AM

Despite all the progress of feminism, eel catching remains a male-dominated industry, and now we know why.

It's the glass eeling, folks, and it is time to change.

I'm here till Sunday. Try the unagi.

DanaC  Tuesday Jul 24 07:18 AM

Oh dear. Zen, that was really goodbad.

newtimer  Tuesday Jul 24 08:32 AM

It doesn't seem right to refer to them as seafood when you cannot see them.

CaliforniaMama  Tuesday Jul 24 11:22 AM

I'd be afraid to touch them. What if they break?

classicman  Tuesday Jul 24 11:35 AM

Glass Eels Hit $950 Per Pound

Sundae  Tuesday Jul 24 03:15 PM

Are they being served with a crepe there?

Wow, compare that with $2/pound for lobster.

classicman  Wednesday Jul 25 09:45 PM

Dried morels are $230 a pound and I thought that was ridiculous.

Trilby  Wednesday Jul 25 10:01 PM

That is totally disgusting.


Ibby  Wednesday Jul 25 10:51 PM

almost as cool as the Glass Frog:

SPUCK  Friday Jul 27 06:54 AM

It's probably one of those things where a pound of glass eels will fill a wheelbarrow.

They have to COUNT those wriggly little bits of slime every day?

Wow. I don't think I'll be volunteering for that any time soon.

What was the ONE he counted separately?
