Abstract

While there is a broad knowledge on parasitic diseases related to the consumption of meat in industrial countries, such as trichinellosis and cysticercosis, food-borne zoonoses related to fish are less studied. Today, increased trade and transportation, demographic changes due to globalisation and changing food trends (e.g. the consumption of sushi and sashimi and low-temperature cooking in countries where raw or undercooked fish is not traditional) are facilitating the spread and increase of these parasitic diseases.
