wormy perch

Caught some perch at Marsh Creek State Park this past weekend and took them home to filet but the meat was full of little white worms. What causes this? Never had this happen before.

Harmless, just don't eat them as sushi!

Panfish from Wilhelm has those parasites in them ever since I was a little kid (39 now).

Suburban redneck.

Re: wormy perch

We caught perch there that had them, we just cut or pull them out and eat them. Never had problems all these years.
