Wolf Eels

This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Wolf Eels, fierce-looking predators of the Oregon near-shore reefs, are bred in captivity at the Oregon Coast Aquarium, in Newport. The artificial habitat there mimics natural ocean conditions so effectively, two sets of mated wolf eels produced eggs. Watch aquarium scientists employ their considerable expertise and resources to see that the eggs hatch, and the young wolf eels survive.
