Early in the last century, the Danish oceanographer Johannes Schmidt succeeded in collecting small anguillid leptocephali in the Sargasso Sea thousands of kilometers away from their growth habitats in Europe and North America, which indicated that the two species of Atlantic fresh-water eels make remarkably long spawning migrations (1).
Because of these studies, species-specific genetic markers can be used to identify all species of anguillid leptocephali (9).
This is the first description of the distribution of anguillid leptocephali identified using genetic markers from Indonesian waters, and these data suggest that as many as five species of the genus Anguilla may use the Indonesian waters as an area for spawning and larval development.
