Three species of marine fish were collected from the waters around Seribu Islands, near Jakarta, Indonesia, and examined for nematode larvae of the family Anisakidae. Larvae were found in 719 (49%) of 1,459 , 445 (50%) of 884 , and 217 (41%) of 531 . Larvae from a subsample of 150 infected fish, 44 , 86 , and 20 , were examined microscopically and only type I and type B larvae were found. In all three species of fish the larvae predominated. The larvae found in these fish are a potential source of infection for humans in Indonesia; however, human anisakiasis has not yet been reported from this country.
