I guess I'm safe here:
"CDC received reports that three fishermen in Baltimore, Maryland, swallowed live minnows and developed severe abdominal pain within 24 hours. Although data are incomplete, infection by larval Eustrongylides spp. is widespread and common in numerous species of freshwater fish. The high rates of infection for minnows (Fundulus spp.) reported here and earlier may indicate a high degree of risk for persons who choose to eat these fish without cooking them first."
