Eel is a Meat food item similar to Fish and can be fished in Wilds Ponds found in the Ruins. Drying an Eel on a Drying Rack will produce Small Jerky. It can also be used to replace Fish as a prerequisite in Crock Pot recipes. The Pig King will trade five Gold Nuggets per Eel, unlike every other meat which only trades for 1 Gold Nugget.

Eels can be used for obtaining a large amount of gold in a relatively short amount of time via the Pig King, although by the time the player receives a large amount of Eels, they would have almost no need for gold requiring items.
