Good question...wonder if there is something less harmful you could put in there to eat the parasites? They did something similar for Lake Erie when the walleye were getting 'em.

I caught a couple of striped bass awhile back and while fileting them I found small worms everywhere in the meat. They were thin, round worms in a kind of spiral shape. Couldn't eat the fish after that.

I have seen this on oldhickory,floating fish with holes in them...The owners are going to be contacting the agriculture folks,maybe send one on the fish in to be tested..

I doubt it's a parasite. Much more likely to be a bacterial infection. Sounds like furunculosis, maybe. If so, salt isn't going to help much. Step one is to get someone out to diagnose what bug is causing the infection. Step two is to treat the water with an appropriate antibiotic - Aquaflor or something like that, most likely.
