Anguillidae is a family of fishes that contains many of the freshwater eels. There are around 15 or 16 species in this family, all in the genus Anguilla. They are catadromous, meaning they spend their lives in freshwater rivers and return to the ocean to spawn. The young eel larvae, called leptocephali, consume plankton close to shore. They grow larger in size, and in their next growth stage are called glass eels. At this stage they live in tidal estuaries until they reach one year of age, at which they are known as elvers. Elvers travel upstream in freshwater rivers where they grow to adulthood. ...more on Wikipedia about "Anguillidae"

An eel ladder is type of fish ladder designed to help eels swim past barriers, such as dams and weirs or even natural barriers, to reach upriver feeding grounds. (Many eels are catadromous, living in fresh water but spawning at sea.) The basic design of an eel ladder has the eel swim over the barrier using an eel ascending ramp, which provides the eels a climbing substrate to "push against" while slithering upstream. For some higher barriers, elevator-style systems are also used. ...more on Wikipedia about "Eel ladder"
