Can anyone identify this salmon parasite
A friend caught a salmon and these came slithering out its mouth after it was dead not sure what they are but they move around similar to a Caterpillar
Leeches. They're reporting lots of leeches on dead and dying salmon in British Columbia.
I agree, looks like lots of leeches
Leeches for sure. All rivers have them but some more than others. One of the really small rivers I fish later fall season most of the fish have leeches on them if they’ve been in the river for more than a day or two
Thanks for the replies I thought they were leeches but was not sure I've never seen one first hand only pics I do wonder if he was eating them or they were eating him
