"...The worms you see in trout are a stage of development of a shark tapeworm. Tapeworms have a complex life cycle and pass through several hosts, with the final host being the specific infective target. In this case, the tapeworm eggs are passed out of a shark, hatch onto larvae which are ingested by copepods, the larvae undergo a metamorphosis, and they're passed on up the food chain with more metamorphoses until they find their way into the muscle tissue of a trout. There seems to be a limit to the number that can live within a fish, and the worms seem to thrive in cleaner, saltier water. When the trout gets eaten by a shark, the worm finally morphs into what we know as a tapeworm and actually infects its host.

I've caught quite a few sharks and don't recall ever seeing any worms in em maybe I missed em either that or the ones I caught were'nt good trout fishermen............

While I honestly don't know this to be a fact in fish, I do know that in mammals the tapeworms reside inside the digestive tract as <U>mature</U> worms (in most cases).

Echinococcus and certain Taenia tapeworms excluded.

I think the worms in the jacks are immature worms, waiting on their definitive adult host to eat them.

If they have the life habits of other tape worms then they will not reside in the flesh of the shark but rather through its digestive tract. I very rarely cut open the organs of a shark other than the stomach sometimes but I think tapeworms more commonly take up residence in the intestines of their host, or in this case the spiral valve of the shark. I could be wrong but this would explain why you wouldn't commonly see them.

Badfish- look back thru as I think you asked if you can see the worms in trout flesh and there is a trout fillet on here that has them in it. If you didnt see the pic it should answer your question However if you DID see the pic but not the worms PLEASE tell me you don't driveoke

SaltAddict- + whatever the next # is on that! I guarantee you, not doubting Korena or anyone specific, but those who "know" these worms wont live in/effect a human 99.9% surely WON'T roll a few dozen fresh ones up in sushi rice&amp; seaweed with a krabstick and an a sliver of avacado I bet even if they are very avid sushi lovers.

Anyone??

On a serious note though, I've always used a pair of large needlenose pliars and grabbed the head, or if I dont see the head, a part of the worm and pulled and even though they do break here and there and you need to regrab they usually slither right out loking thru the flesh like a white ball of yarn slowly getting smaller and sometimes if wound tight leave a "cavity" where they were but they are 100% gone or I'mnot eatin it and if you've ever fished with me you know I'll eat anything ALMOST and usually pester you to do the same if the fish arnt biting OR some sort of occurance/apperance of a critter happens and its your destiny to take one for the team!


Anyone know what "kingfishermans vitamins" are and when one must indulge?

Redfish (3/24/2010)Tom Like I said Before Most of all the AJ's I have Caught will Have some Worms In Them Some more than Others!! The One I took To Mike That Night Only Had them In The Tail, Like everyone Has Said They Don't Change the Taste or Bad For you It's Just That Mind Thing!!!!!!:banghead, Hope you Had a Good Time Today!!!
You're right about it being a mind thing! I can get past it if I cut the worms out of the meat. Now Maria on the other it's best not to let here know they even had one worm, she won't go near it even if you said you cut the worm or worms out! Some things are just better left unsaid!:doh


Well, that's where the trouble started. I had been cutting them out, but these last two fish were so loaded, i could not feed them to her, so i had to explain where all the fish went. now she knows...

Tunapopper, thanks for the info and pics. That might help me weed them out.
