Nadia Adrian Lasimbang, 5, playing with an eel at the Labuan Maritime Museum yesterday. The eel, or ‘Monopterus Albus’, is a fish that is long in figure with a rounded head and gills. The eel has fat, calcium, iron and vitamins B and D, which make it an ideal delicacy. Many believe that eels can help treat kidney failure, asthma and healing of surgical wounds. Pic by Supian Ahmad.
