Non-detriment finding assessment for the export from the United Kingdom of CITES-listed European eel Anguilla anguilla (2023-26) 2023
European eel (Anguilla anguilla) is listed in Appendix II of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES), and in Annex B of the Wildlife Trade Regulations which implement CITES in the UK, meaning that no international trade can be authorised unless it can be demonstrated that such trade is not detrimental to the survival of the species in the wild.
This report provides the over-arching non-detriment finding (NDF) assessment under CITES for trade in European eel (Anguilla anguilla) from the United Kingdom (UK) including, under the provisions of the Northern Ireland Protocol, between Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
Any individual applications for trade will be assessed against this NDF to provide specific advice in each case. This over-arching NDF has been reviewed by the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) and the CITES Animals Committee; it will be reviewed every three years.
