Some 2,000 kg of adult eels and 35,000 young eels have been released into the Desheng River, south China's Guangdong Province, to proliferate the eel breeding population in the natural watercourse.

Eels are a cash species in China. Due to the combined influence of the global climate, environmental challenges and human activities, aquatic resources have decreased sharply worldwide.

Eel farming has been developed in south China's Pearl River Delta. In May, the eel species in Shunde City was included in China's national list of famous and excellent agricultural products.

This eel release activity, which was carried out Friday, is expected to help restore the eel stock in the area. Scientists will trace the growth of the released eels in order to explore ways to promote the conservation of aquatic resources.
