ABSTRACT
In this article, the author comments on the increasing cases of anisakidosis, a human parasitic infection caused by the ingestion of Anisakis simplex and Pseudoterranova decipiens from uncooked seafood. According to the author, reducing the risk of such infection can be achieved through visual inspection of fish, removal of visible parasites, and termination of parasitized fish. The author stresses that freezing is the key to prevent fish or seafood-related parasitic infections.
