The methods of prevention against Fasciola are simple. Firstly, avoid taking raw or undercooked freshwater fish, and infectious parasites can be found in lightly salted, smoked, or pickled seafood.

  • Cooking: Cook the fish thoroughly (at least 145° F [63° C] internal temperature).
  • Freezing: At -20°C or below for at least seven days total time; or at -35°C or lower until solid, then storing at -35°C or lower for at least 15 hours; or at -20°C or lower until solid, then storing at -20°C or lower for at least 24 hours.
