Default Bugs in Fish

Has anyone ever run into little white worms in fish? If so, what's the deal??

Thanks in advance.

just pick em out most fish have parasites.i once caught rock bass that had small white/yellow worms i called the Fish dept and they said dont worry,cod gets red worms too.hold the fillets up to the light and pull em out .if your really worried call your local fish and game department and let them know and ask

Throw an old catfish in the bottom of the boat on a hot summer day and the worms will come out.......disgusting.

Does that filet to the light thing prove the same even if you bought a fish from a Wegmans or Tops?
