Yesterday he stepped onto his blocks.   CALLUM ANGUS The last eel of the Rio Grande grows up lonely and serpentine, a river with gills and a pulse swimming inside itself. What the eel doesn’t know could fill a book: that hydroelectric dams keep it from traveling upstream; the taste of its own flesh smothered in soy sauce.

COMPETITIVE FREESTYLE & BACKSTROKE: The Eel level swim lessons build upon the skills learned in the Puffer level. We introduce more advanced forms of technique and faster, more efficient breathing techniques for Freestyle and Backstroke. Despite that, several books dealing with eel biology, aquaculture, fishing, etc., have been published, but there still is a need for a text dealing with eel physiology. This book fills a void in eel literature by presenting various aspects of eel physiology in one comprehensive volume.
