An eel is any fish belonging to the order Anguilliformes, which consists of four suborders, 20 families, 111 genera and about 800 species. Most eels are predators.
The term “eel”, originally referring to the European eel, is also used for some other similarly shaped fish, such as electric eels and spiny eels.
However, these are not members of the Anguilliformes order. (source)

Many species of fish are consumed as food.
Fish has been an important source of protein and other nutrients for humans from time immemorial.
In culinary and fishery contexts, fish may include shellfish, such as mollusks, crustaceans, and echinoderms.
English does not distinguish between fish as an animal and the food prepared from it, as it does with pig vs. pork or cow vs. beef.
Some other languages do, as in the Spanish peces versus pescado. (source)
