That's just nasty. I wouldn't keep one. In the comments someone said it's already here in the US. Anyone seen anything like this?

Looks to have some type of tie back to over-fished areas.

You know if that thing ever falls asleep and the fish swallows, it's a goner.

Over-fishing may not be good, but I would like to review the detailed information and basis for conclusion. Per the article, it appears this is being concluded due to discovering a higher percentage in areas of overfishing. To me, if that is the conclusion basis, it is insufficient.

Agreed. My guess is that they are correlating the overfishing with the weakening of the species, and associating that with the parasite being able to get a foot hold. I'd love to see more findings, but that's just my guess.

If I caught a fish with one of those I'd get it out with the needle nose pliers, toss the lucky fish back and bait up with that nasty bastage.
