Eels (Anguilliformes; /æŋˌɡwɪlɨˈfɔrmiːz/) are an order of fish which consists of four suborders, 20 families, 111 genera and approximately 800 species. Most eels are predators. The term "eel" is also used for some other similarly shaped fish, such as electric eels and spiny eels, but these are not members of the Anguilliformes order.

Famous quotes containing the word eels:

    Going down for the last time, the last breath lying,
    I grapple with eels like ropes—it’s ether, it’s queer
    and then, at last, it’s done. Now the scavengers arrive,
    the hard crawlers who come to clean up the ocean floor.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
