Eel fisherman Shane O'Neill displays some of his catch after a morning's fishing on Lough Neagh in Northern Ireland, August 29, 2013. From the traditional stands of London's working class East End to haute cuisine in Japan, the eel has a long and rich history on global dinner plates. But it is becoming an increasingly rare delicacy as numbers are plummeting and fishing being cut under European regulations to help reverse declines and make numbers sustainable. Fishermen on the United Kingdom's largest lake, the shallow grey-green and nutrient rich Lough Neagh in Northern Ireland, believe their traditional industry and way of life may be coming to an end.
