I used to live in a little town called Dunn, in North Carolina, far, FAR
away from the coast. There was a little pond in the woods about half the
size of my house, and it had eels aplenty in it. I have no idea how they
could have gotten there or survived over generations. It's not like they
could have returned to the sea for spawning or anything. I guess they
don't have to?
