Re: tape worms in salmon

randy gagne
Has anyone seen tape worms in the stomache of the salmon.I caught a nice fat healthy salmon on thursday,hooked pretty hard and kept it for a meal.When I cut into the stomache it was full of tape worms, nothing else.The fish looked great, fat and great color.Is this normal and has anyone else seen this?The fish was caught on lake winni.

Very common every spring ????????????????????????????

I've asked the biologist about it and they say it does them no harm, we get them on Squam too and they are super fat. Not sure about this year, we haven't caught one yet, ugh.

I realy think they should do harm, but I'm no biologist, they are fine to eat unless you eat the guts, ugh.
