There are exclusive saltwater and freshwater eels. There are also
brackish water eels that migrate between different salinities, either
spending part of their life in rivers or hunting in estuaries. I have
no idea of the differences in tastes though... or even if the
freswater eels are ever eaten... this is all fishkeeping knowledge...
