Salmon farming giant Marine Harvest is having an issue with a flesh-eating myxosporean parasite called Kudoa thyrsites. Kudoa causes post-mortem myoliquefaction (soft-flesh syndrome) in farmed salmon on sale in supermarkets and is causing a financial loss for Marine Harvest.
Costco’s manager admitted on the hidden camera that 1 out of every 200 fillets of farmed salmon on sale is infected with the parasite Kudoa. “Some are more mushy than others,” he said. “Some you pick up and they’re like paste. Once every couple of days we get a few like this.”
According to Marine Harvest's annual report they spent 12 million dollars last year to get rid of infected fish and provide refunds.

If liquified parasitic salmon at your local BC Costco was not bad enough.....
