A form of nematode (parasitic worm) often found in fish (such as cod or mackerel). You see them on the outside of the internal organs, the liver etc. and on the fat between the guts. Generally all this is removed when fish are gutted. Occasionally they are visible in the flesh of the fish, but are completely harmless once cooked. See 'Nematode'
