The Indonesian Longfinned Eel Anguilla borneensis is the only plain-coloured, longfinned eel found in Indonesia. Anguilla borneensis, like all anguillid eels, is susceptible to a number of, primarily anthropogenic, threats. These threats include but are not limited to; barriers to migration, climate change, habitat degradation, invasive species, parasitism, pollution, predation and unsustainable exploitation. The significance of any single threat, or the synergy it may have with other threats is still poorly understood (Jacoby et al. 2015).
