In order to evaluate the effect of the high prevalence of parasites Anisakidae family, in fish caught in the fishing area Médano white, Falcon State, Venezuela; consumed by families of fishermen and villagers expended sector Pantano Abajo, municipality Miranda, Falcon state. The participatory diagnosis was made in the fishing area, in the consumer population and the dispenser Health Center (Ambulatory Urban) using unstructured interviews, surveys and review of medical records during the first half of 2013. An average of 1098 patient month has symptoms: asthma allergic diseases, diarrhea and vomiting, with percentages remains in a range that goes from 29.81% to 38.43%. 68% of fishermen dispense fish without sanitary permit. Fishermen and consumers are likely to be accidental hosts of the parasite, not having adequate prevention levels.
