Conger eel in Dutch canal

This video says about itself:

Conger Eels off Irish West Coast

Monty Hall dives with Conger eels off Roundstone on the Connemara coast.

Dutch IMARES researchers report that on 28 November 2013, a young conger eel was caught in the Noordzeekanaal in the Netherlands.

This was the first time ever that this fish species was found in that canal.

This conger eel was 43 centimeter. Adults may get much longer.

The young conger eel was caught during monitoring of the migration of adult European eels from the Netherlands to their spawning grounds in the Sargasso Sea.

During that monitoring in 2012, there had been another unusual species as well: a lesser spotted dogfish.
