Artist's Description

Eel embryo. Light micrograph of a newly-hatched embryo of the Japanese eel, Anguilla japonica. The 3 millimetre-long embryo emerges from its egg about 36 hours after fertilisation. It lives at depths of about 75 metres and feeds on plankton, growing at about 0.56 millimetres a day. As the larvae grow they undergo a metamorphosis, eventually achieving the adult form. From A. japonica's spawning grounds near the Mariana Islands in the Pacific, the larvae are swept towards the coasts of China, Korea and Japan. They then migrate up freshwater rivers where they spend their adult live before returning to the spawning grounds to breed and die.

About Sinclair Stammers

Sinclair Stammers

Science Photo Library was founded in 1981 by Michael Marten, one of the authors of "Worlds Within Worlds", a book exploring different ways to observe the universe - from electron micrographs, to images of earthrise taken from the Apollo spacecraft. When Marten started receiving requests for the beautiful images in the book, he had an idea of setting up Science Photo Library. Since then, Science Photo Library has continued to work alongside world acclaimed photographers and the leading science and medical experts to provide a central source of the best science and specialist imagery available. Although the collection started with scientific images, it has grown to encompass all aspects of science and their impact on everyday life.
