The aim of this research was to highlight the importance of the study and prevention of Anisakis spp., which have no proper attention of producers and consumers. This work also describe a new technique development for worms detection that belongs to Anisakidae Family. This is an specific and sensitivemethod as revealed by the tests performed, and also presents easily application in seafood industry, and fast implementation when compared with candling table. The new method has low cost and allows to detect larvae from Anisakidae Family in any specie and any kind of fish, including fresh, frozen or even canned. This technique is based on muscle tissue digestion in a short time (15 seconds) and fast analysis of the parasites structures present by ultravioleta light (UV) observation.
