Abstract
    Eggs from Anisakis simplex did not hatch during experiments conducted at 37 °C. A comparison between A. simplex eggs from the fore intestine and hind-intestine of long-finned pilot whales, Globicephala melas, captured in the Faroe Island waters showed no significant development of eggs during passage through the intestinal tract. This observation indicates an inhibitory effect on hatching by high temperatures if the final host is a mammal.
