Lake Ida Sunnies have black spots

Recommended Posts

Guest

Hey,

For the past month, the sunnies I have caught on Ida all seem to have black spots in the meat. Is this a parasite?? Is it still safe to eat?? Is this normal, and I just have not noticed it in the past?

Thanks

those black spot are a parasite that buroughs into fish as part of a life cycle, that involves snails then boroughs in fish then as fish is eaten by larger fish or bird the parasite reaches adulthood and eggs are excreted throught bird and back to snail. I find black spot in lakes with good water clearity (easy for birds to see bait). I eat the fish when cooked parasite is dead (althought some fish have a lot and looks realy bad so I throw them back too many spots don't look appealing)
