Abstract:

A female of the eel Anguilla anguilla of about 1m was caught in the Kolskiy zaliv Kola Bay in August 1957. Its external characteristics and the state of ovaries showed that spawning migration has begun. It is likely that the individual described penetrated into the Kila Bay from the Baltic Sea having overcome the watershed between the basins of the Kemi-Yoka and Tuloma rivers. Author
