These are passive tames. In my experience trying to tame a 145. You will find having a Basilosaurus will provide you with a mount immune to the shock.
Wear a combination of Riot and Scuba gear. Bring multiple sets. They will destroy your tanks and flippers if you get hit enough times. Lone eels do not deal enough torpor to be a substantial threat with the riot gear.
The hard part is feeding them. They will glow bright blue (without goggles on) when they have built up a charge, and charge you. Discharge a 7 second stun, bite and then flee.
Lure them into an enclosed area. Such as a trap for water tames or a river. This will reduce their mobility and make them an easier tame than in the open ocean. Because they will flee the majority of the tame if they have the room to do so.

Just tamed two on official. I built a small 2x6 box with a Dino gateway out of stone. Park my Dino nearby, then swim with flippers to gain aggro. Kited 4 into box, and i escaped through doorframes. 2 somehow got out through a hole in the ceiling before i could patch it. After a death and some shit, it's was super easy to feed them biotoxin without getting shocked. The stone walls protect you fully. I don't see an easier way if you build your own right.
