I fish with live eels often and have -devised an effective way to keep them alive for an extended time. Drill small holes in the bottom of a plastic -five-gallon bucket. Put the eels inside, and then loosely stretch a piece of burlap across the top, securing it with a bungee cord. Stack this bucket inside a second bucket, and pile cubed ice on top of the burlap. The cold water percolates throughout, keeping the eels moist and motionless until needed.
