If you have cought on or used one with this parasite, please E-Mail this info to her at:

How would you know if the eel you're using/catching has this condition? What are physical signs?

Hi All :
A good question. I don't know what this parasite looks like.
I'll E-Mail Suzanne and find out and post the results when I can.
Thanks for that quick turn around.

Hi Guys :
The parasite worm is approx 1-2 cm. long. It will appear whitish in color. It infects the swimm bladder. This bladder is found just below the spine.
Since there are no known native parasites that in habit the swim bladder, whatever you find will be AC.
I'm hoping to get a picture faxed to me. As soon as I get it, I'll post it on this site.
Thanks for all the help in this.
