A little Copenhagen kills most worms! I don't kill alot of perch unless I'm bored, but I definitely can confirm the worms in rock fish. More than once I left fillets in the frig  and after a couple of days you can visual see a ton of worms, it's never stopped me from eating them fully cooked but you can definitely freak yourself out. I figure a little extra protein in my wife's :thumbsup: diet won't hurt.

I think Sushi in Ca has to be frozen to an especially cold temperature. I don't think most home freezers will kill parasites. Cook your fish or risk all kinds of problems. Some types of fish are more prone to parasites than others but any fish can have them.

I found this on wikipedia:

Health risks
As with most foods, sushi is not free from health risks, but these risks are minimized with proper preparation and service. Some large fish, such as tuna (especially bluefin), can harbor high levels of mercury. This is due to the tuna's position at the top of the food chain (among sea creatures). Thus, tuna can lead to mercury poisoning when consumed in quantity.[16] Details are also described in an article, "Mercury in fish". The FDA recommends eating up to 6 - 12 ounces a week of a variety of fish and shellfish.[17]
Parasite infection by raw fish is rare in the modern world (fewer than 40 cases per year in the U.S.),[18] and involves mainly three kinds of parasites: Clonorchis sinensis (a trematode/fluke), Anisakis (a nematode/roundworm) and Diphyllobothrium (a cestode/tapeworm).[18] Infection risk of anisakis is particularly higher in fish which may live in a river such as salmon (shake) in Salmonidae, and mackerel (saba). Such parasite infections can generally be avoided by boiling, burning, preserving in salt or vinegar, or freezing overnight.
For the above reasons, the EU regulation No 853/2004[19] forbids the use of fresh raw fish; it has to be frozen at temperatures below -20 °C in all parts of the product for not less than 24 hours.

I always cut the cheeks out of fish and eat raw while I finish cleaning the fish....I will not be doing this any more. Guess I have been lucky thus far.
