Probably because you're dividing the human egg volume by the eel egg volume when it should be the other way around.
3. But 697 is the value for the eel egg size?

I think its 2583 times larger.

Nope. Im wrong as well. Can't think straight.
You should convert the mm into um before you carry it out.
This is what I did:

0.55x1000= 550um.
4/3 x pi x 550^3 / 1.8 x 10^6 =387 times larger.
mm^3 x 1000 isn't equal to um^3
