The eel genome project has been founded by an international consortium (Netherlands, France, Japan, Norway).
The draft genomes of two eel species, the European eel, Anguilla anguilla, and the Japanese eel, Anguilla japonica, have been sequenced using the Illumina method.
The ongoing project includes further assembly of the European eel genome by using ew methodologies for direct sequencing and analysis of Megabase size DNA.
The consortium is also organising international conferences and workshops on eel genomics and transcriptomics.
With nearly 1200 species, inland waters of the Indonesian archipelago illustrate the challenges inherent to the conservation of fish resources in tropical regions.
The main objective of our project is to inventory in CEPF (Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund) priority sites freshwater fish and crustaceans in Solomon and Vanuatu in order to fill the gaps identified at IUCN Redlisting workshop. It will propose management solutions that will assist environmental managers, land-owners, local communities and all those interested in sustainable freshwater management. This work will provide help:

In recent years, the use of geochemical markers in geosciences and ecology has considerably increased in order to improve understanding of the functioning of hydrosystems. Within the Amazon basin, the main hydrogeochemical databases are provided by the HYBAM observatory, which has been monitoring different stations for more than 10 years. The size and complexity of the basin make monthly water monitoring logistically and financially complex, especially in the long term.
