A: Do you like to eat sashimi? Do you want to go try out that new sashimi place after work?

爱吃生鱼片吗?下班后要不要去尝尝那家新开的刺身店?

(àichī shēnɡyúpiàn ma?xiàbān hòu yào bùyào qù chánɡchánɡ nàjiā xīnkāi de cìshēndiàn?)

B: Sorry, I don't care for raw fish. I heard that sashimi can have parasites.  

实在抱歉, 我吃不惯生鱼肉。我听说生鱼片里可能含有寄生虫。

(shízài bàoqiàn, wǒ chībùɡuàn shēnɡ yúròu. wǒ tīnɡshuō shēnɡyúpiàn lǐ kěnénɡ hányǒu jìshēnɡchónɡ.)

A: If that's what you're worried about, you can't eat free of care because fresh saltwater fish usually don't have any parasites, while the chances for parasites in freshwater fish are higher.

如果你担心的是这个, 大可放心食用。因为新鲜的海鱼一般没有寄生虫, 淡水鱼含寄生虫的概率比较大。
