About one thousand species of fishes are found in marine and fresh water in Pakistan. Majority of these are edible. And very few are examined for their nematode parasites.
 
Most of marine fishes are included among the group of edible fishes. Some of these including, Scomberomorus guttatus, Pomadasys olivaceum, Pomadasys maculatum, Pomadasys stridens, Otolithus ruber, Sphyraena forsteri, Sphyraena jello, Lates calcarifer and Sillago sihama are popular edible fishes in Pakistan, due to their delicious taste and are full of nourishment such as proteins and vitamins particularly vitamin E and vitamin D.
