Toomebridge eel fishery at is situated just a little downstream from where
the River Bann leaves Lough Neagh on it's journey to the Atlantic Ocean. The Fishery is located between the old and new Bridges
Eels unlike salmon, don’t reproduce in freshwater and instead travel
from Lough Neagh, all the way to the Sargasso sea between Bermuda and Puerto Rico. The fishery at Toomebridge have trapper
boxes set and ready for a good catch as they migrate downstream to the sea.
