Abstract
    Of the 231 herring specimens caught in autumn from the Polish part of the Vistula Lagoon, 6.5% were found to contain III-stage Anisakis simplex larvae. The parasites were recorded in the fish longer than 23 cm. The presence of Anisakis simplex in autumn increases the risk of infection for accidental hosts, including humans.
