This paper analyzes some variation in the global eel industry and the main producing countries (regions) of eel production trends based on the 1950-2012 global eel production data. The results show that in 1950-2012, the overall global eel production rose rapidly. The world's major producing countries (regions) were variable during different periods, and the industry concentration of the global eel industry shows a very high feature. China ranks first in the global eel production since 1989 and plays a very important role in the global eel industry. About 80% of the global eel production is in China. The Changes of China's eel production has a significant effect to the global eel production. In recent years, due to the long-term high-density overfishing and environmental factors, the global eel fry recourses are becoming less and less, but it also suffered a serious "eel fry supply bottleneck". Currently, the best way to promote the development of eel aquaculture industry is improving its technical efficiency.
