The caption is incorrect. First of all, the louse DOES NOT eat the tongue of the fish, eat feeds off the blood from the tongue from the fish until the tongue eventually atrophies and falls off. It then latches on to the stump of the tongue, acting as a new tongue for the fish. It then continues to feed off of blood and mucous that is produced in the mouth of the fish. It DOES NOT try to steal food that the fish is trying to eat. This would make it a very ineffective parasite, since as a parasite, it requires a LIVE host. The fish would starve if the louse ate its food. Is it really that hard to fact check???

In Puerto Rico, C. exigua was the leading subject of a lawsuit against a large supermarket chain. Because C. exigua is found in snappers from the Eastern Pacific and is shipped worldwide for commercial consumption, contamination by the parasite is inevitable. The customer in the lawsuit claimed to have been poisoned by eating an isopod cooked inside a snapper. This case, however, was dropped on the grounds that isopods are not poisonous to humans and some are even consumed as part of a regular diet.

I did a report on these for an animal behavior course. It was cool.
