I read about them somewhere. There parasetic grubs that have a complicated life cycle involving snails, fish (sometimes frogs), and fish eating birds. The larvae grow inside snails to a certain length and go into fish. Once inside the fish, a fish eating bird (a crane for example) eats the fish and the larvae work there way into the digestive tract of birds. The larvae then turn into to a pupae (cocoon). Finally, after they crack their pupae, they are adults and start laying eggs. The digestive tract of the bird expels the eggs into the water and the snails eat the eggs.Then the eggs hatch....

P.S. There safe to eat aslong as you cook the fish thouroughly(spelling?),I myself wouldn't eat them though!

Hope this helps!
