Photo of an eel about to be sliced because it got caught in a fisherman's line. Eels (like every other marine creature) help keep the ecosystem balanced. They get caught by humans who are fishing and succumb to their death either because they aren't wanted or because they are wanted for food. Overfishing is a huge issue and this needs to be at least regulated.
