From what I have read, people in many parts of the world include insects in their diets...I guess I am a spoiled American...here's hoping I will never *have to* resort to eating insects (on purpose that is, havalotta).

Black spot is another parasite that affects the local fish...
A few spots tend to blend in along with the pepper specks but large infestations are definitely set free...
Shortened a bit...

Eggs are released by fish-eating birds into the water. Eggs develop in snails. The free-swimming parasites penetrate muscles of fish and encyst. Black pigmentation is deposited onto these cysts. Infected fish are consumed by birds
