Black Drum Parasites

I fished surfside this last weekend and picked up 4 Black Drum ranging from about 18-22". All four were full of parasites. They had white worms winding through their flesh. How common is this?

The worms are harmless and will cook out of the fish. Just like the worms in trout. Pick em out if you need to.

flounder re: black drum worms

just like stated above they will cook out fine and are harmless almost 85-90% of black drum if caught and brought back to the cleaning table had worms no problem, the worms are there year roundthey just get bigger when it gets hotter, ok to eat.

Spaghetti worms. Harmless. More common in the bigger fish too. Trout have them at all sizes, especially in the surf.

Some fish have them and some don't. It's common in all fish around the world. Most people don't realize that part of processing salmon on the fillet line is cutting out the worms. They can be stacked with them. Depending on the numbers found many fillets wont make it to market. The fillet line uses a light table on a conveyor to spot and cut them out. This is exactly why there are QC positions in the fishing industry. At least that is what I experienced working up in Alaska. We're talking 160,000 pounds processed per processing ship a day at times. Tender ships tend to hold around 80k per offload. I don't recall halibut having any but, I am sure it is very possible. Those rugs sit in some very deep water and that may play a big part.

Very common and harmless as stated.

I suppose it is just protein, but wife won't touch it with a ten foot poll.

Are those "PCB deposit" potentials?
Someone mentioned that on the "fish warnings" thread ...
