Cracking the code of a long-distance swimmer

A scientist holds juvenile American eels. Almost indistinguishable from the European eel, the American eel is also born in the Sargasso Sea. It makes a similar long-distance migration to North American fresh water rivers. Researchers of the new study on European eels theorize the American eel might also tune into the magnetic field to assist its migration. (Courtesy of Virginia Institute of Marine Science).

Not all eels are electric, but some might actually be magnetic. Full story>>
