Don't know for sure if they do or don't, But.....

Here are some links regarding Sea Lamprey attacks on humans.

Here is a very interesting article about the Sea Lamprey saying they don't target humans.

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.......

Drive carefully . . .   It's not only cars that can be recalled by their Maker.
