went to Boiler Bay the other day and didn't catch, but a couple of guys had caught some sea trout and gave them to us. my Girlfriend cooked them up and when eating them found a worm in the fish... i wasn't here i didn't see it...
we didn't eat the rest of them.
As was said, you're in no danger from the worms in the fish that you catch...as long as you cook them thoroughly... Allow me to copy'n'paste a post that I did on a related thread in another forum:
One of the most common parasites that you'll see in your fish are members of the genuses Anisakis or Pseudoterranova. They are roundworms that you'll find in the muscle tissue or viscera of many marine fish.
The life-cycle of these two genuses are quite similar and go something like this excerpt from the Roundworm Book of Genesis...
In the beginning, there was the Egg. When the Egg was received into the Water, it developed and soon hatched into the Larva. The Larva was eaten by the Crustacean and grew, and it was good.
The Crusacean was eaten by the Fish and the Larva migrated into the Flesh. (At this point, the larvae are infective to humans and marine mammals... this is the point where YOU will deal with these creatures.[Ed.])
The Fish or Squid was eaten by the Host, a pinniped (for Pseudoterranova) or a cetacean (for Anisakis) and thus was granted entry into the Great Holy Flesh wherein, the Larva molted and grew into the Roundworm.
The Roundworm mated and laid new eggs, which left the Host on a wave of excrement to meet with the Water and start the cycle anew.
Thus, in areas of pinniped or cetacean concentration, you are more likely to find these worms in your fish. If you wish to reduce your chances of meeting these worms, fish in places A.) there are few cetaceans (whales, dolphins, etc.) or pinnipeds (seals, sea lions, etc.) or B.) the fish do not often feed on crustaceans.
Otherwise... well... just cook 'em up with the rest of the fish and try not to think much about it...
Keep in mind that these round worms cannot complete their life cycle in a human host and will eventually die; however, they can bore their way through flesh before they do so, which can be rather painful for the host... So be sure to thoroughly cook your fish and, if you plan to eat it raw or in ceviche, candle cut strips of fish before eating or adding to raw fish recipes.
