There are seasonal and habitat related variations in fish abundance. That killifish are a prime forage organism in Virginia streams because of very shallow water, weedy habitat overlaps with snakeheads and because the killies are very abundant does not mean that small yellow eels are not a prime forage organism in the deeper and relatively weed-free areas of the tidal Delaware and Schuylkill. In fact, a follow-up discussion with another biologist who samples the tidal Schuylkill revealed that as I had properly recalled, snakeheads there were full of small yellow eels during spring sampling.

As for Pa’s concern about eels and why they are allowed to be sold in Pa, please note that Pa does not permit commercial fishing for eels, has removed more dams than any state in the country, and, to my knowledge, has been involved in pressing for eel passage facilities and/or capture & transport around some major dams, thus Pa is doing its part.
