Eel is a Meat food item similar to Fish and can be fished in Wilds Ponds found in the Ruins and Ponds in the Toadstool setpiece. 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.

Trading one Eel with the Pig King will yield five Gold Nuggets, while all other meat items yield one 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.

However the ability to make Surf 'n' Turf while exploring the ruins can keep you fed and sane indefinitely.

Cooked Eel is obtained from cooking an Eel at a CampfireFire Pit, or Dwarf Star. It can be used to cook Fishsticks and Fish Tacos or as a filler in a Crock Pot. Like other cooked foods, it cannot be dried on the Drying Rack.
