Initially, when evaluating the life history of Anisakis, there was some confusion as to whether the worm noted in the digestive tract was capable of boring through the intestines of the host fish to encyst within its musculature.
magna infection (Swales 1936, Pybus 2001), some cercariae may encyst as free-floating metacercariae in surface water (Morley 2015).
