Interesting stuff on the lamprey . Using the pheromones to attract them is a promising idea to help destroy the gobies & asian carp . I hope it works . Before I read the links , I figured the eels would not attack humans because we are warm blooded (well mostly).........But after a swimmer has been swimming in cold water any length of time ,the skin cools down & you may be a target for a lamprey . I didn't see any info on lamprey eels for eating.......The euro eels are great ,done in the smoker.......
