The lifecycle of these nematode worms is super interesting. The worms, when eaten, release eggs in the digestive tract. The eggs burrow through the intestinal wall and enter the bloodstream. They flow through the bloodstream until they get wedged in a capillary somewhere, then they begin to grow. In humans usually a pea sized cyst will develop around the worm. These can develop anywhere in your body, including your brain. Cooking and freezing will kill them, so the worms you're eating will at least no longer be infectious.
Enjoy your fish.
