Anisakiasis has been reported from fish cultured in the seto Inland Sea by Aji et al. [1]. However, the infection route in man involves many complicated factors such as parasitic rates and geographical distribution of Anisakinae larvae, the edible portion of the fish and parasitic site of larvae, and the habit of eating raw fish or others [2,3]. To help in the prevention of anisakiasis, we examined the parasitic rate for the 3rd stage of Anisakinae larvae in fish caught in the Seto Inland Sea.
