If you put the eels in water they ae not dying from drowning. What is happening is they are suffercating. The best way to handle the eels is to place them in a bucket that has small hole drilled in the bottom if it put the eels in it and then place some weed in with them to retain the moisture and place a small baggie of ice on top of the weed the cold will calm them down if you are gong to place the bucket in the back of a car just place one bucket in side the other

Not only that, but believe it or not, they do(if I'm not mistaken) breathe air. I have kept eels alive for days. So long as I kept them cool and rinse the bucket once or twice a day. The important thing to remember is to keep them moist. Even with a small amount of water, they will drown in their own slime. Hope this helps.
