Ewww!

You did gross me out but you reminded me why I am a sushi/sashimi WUSS. I will only eat the lightweight stuff like California and Boston rolls. I also am a big WUSS when it comes to eating raw clams, etc. Some people just love this stuff and I cannot even swallow it because it's raw.

If you buy "wild" sockeye at Trader Joe's, you will find evidence of worms in their flesh. However, it is safe to eat because it has been frozen.

All raw salmon consumed commercially in Japan is farmed for this reason.

I do not buy "wild" salmon for this reason. It's piggy-backing on the organic crazy and priced higher, too. Funny.
This is good to know! Thanks!

ceviche is different because the acid in the citrus juices chemically "cooks" the fish.

Interesting! I only buy wild salmon, as the "farmed" label just turns me off.
Did not know about the worms, luckily have not encountered them so far.

On the adventurous side, I have had fugu fish a couple of times in Japan and in South Korea. I guess, it's always taking a risk and trusting the chef with that one. Just a slight tingly sensation adds a thrill .

The wildest stuff I have had to eat was in South Korea - some is unmentionable... But, no, no "healthy soup", aka dog!
