No, no - the beers are on him now. lol

Beware. My husband bought me 2 pieces of smoked cod today from Morrisons reduced. Just about to select which piece to have for tonights tea when it moved... damned thing had worms uuugggghhh.

Needless to say, I am returning to Morrisons tomorrow for a full refund or going to Environmental Health.

The sea bass I saw today werent very big nor very fresh looking. I think I paid about £2.70 full price for one of comparable size a couple of months ago.

Some cod do have worms in them. A decent fishmonger should get most of them, but the odd one will get through. Some details here - stoke.gov.uk/ccm…0Xg

If it's cod worms, apparently they're harmless once cooked. Must admit I share the uuugggghh response, though.

Yum Yum :x

I go fishing a lot, and have seen worms on cods and pollocks, but have been told by skippers of boats that they are harmless once cooked.

Are they ill-tempered?

you see, I normally go for the 'learn at least one new thing every day'.

Which I have now after reading this thread - but really really wished I hadn't.

:-D

Interesting story though. I now know about Cod worms, i have fish for my tea today though :w00t:

Buy fish? nah, nothing more satisfiying than catching your own meal!

and line caught will always taste better than farmed.

Indeed. Though not mutated unfortunately. Won't take off a henchman's head but will give you a nasty nip on the finger.

Yeah that's quite normal I've had a few cooked ones in my cod from the chippy occasionally. There is an acceptable level for them so many worms per so many kilos I believe. Can't find the link for it atm, but I read about it recently. You can't go to environmental health regarding it.

Ah here's the link. Read the last paragraph entitled

"How serious is the problem of worms in fish?" >

fao.org/wai…htm

I try and eat haddock as there's supposed to be less chance of them in that species. Did you know bread has ground up insects and beetles in it? Worms seem gross in Cod but they're harmless.

Mites in food >

en.wikipedia.org/wik…ite

Found in grains, flour, cured meats and some cheese.

I always find worms in cod from the fish'n'chip shop. They get just under the skin and really are more common than not.
It is one of those things that not many people would want to know, so nobody says anything.
They are harmless and you wouldn't notice them unless you searched for them (which I have no doubt that many of you now will)

Cod can sometimes have alot of worms in them, like others have said no problem with them but they are obviously off-putting.

These fish will be small farmed bass from most likely Greece or Turkey, will be fatty as they are fed pellets in pens. Good deal but I wouldn't buy any, rather get local fresh wild bass when its in season, the season is just coming now. Check your local fishmonger if you have one.

Sounds like a good buy.

I'm going to jump on my pike now and get me one
