This paper describes and evaluates the efficiency of a simple technique for recovering larval ascaridoid nematodes (Anisakis simplex and Pseudoterranova decipiens) from the flesh of marine fish. The technique involves mechanical disintegration of the flesh in a domestic food processor, followed by visual inspection of diluted portions of the resulting homogenate under short-wave ultraviolet light. The nematodes, which remain intact, fluorescence brightly and are easily detected, particularly if… CONTINUE READING
