Anisakidae have several species of fish as intermediate or paratenic hosts, and piscivorous birds and mammals as definitive hosts Anderson They have found no obvious evidence of damage by the helminthes in conhracaecum of the contracaeum tracts of the Megadyptes antipodes in New Zeland.

Although the penguins of this study did not have ulcers, a hemorrhagic area was observed in the stomach of one animal. However, the intensity of parasitic infection was macroscopically rated as low.
