In eel on endangered list, Japan sees a vanishing dish

 A growing concern among the Japanese is that the eel, which is an integral part of the country's diet, has been listed as endangered. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) on Thursday said that adding the eel to the list of endangered species could mean a ban on the international trade of the animal. This announcement has become a cause of great concern among the eel traders in Japan, who due to the significant decline in the local numbers of the marine animal in recent years depend largely on its import, especially in the spawning stage, from countries such as South Korea or China.
