Anisakiasis is a potentially fatal condition associated with the accidental ingestion by humans of nematodes in infected fish. Most anisakiasis is associated with ingestion of the nematode Anisakis spp with the remainder principally associated with the related Pseudoterranova spp. This project was concerned with surveying the prevalence and intensity of infection of these nematodes in targeted Scottish white fish populations and investigating the efficacy of current processing and detection methods.
