Happens to me very frequently. Finally at Whole Foods a helpful worker taught me how to check ahead: hold the raw fish fillets up against a bright light and cut the critter out. Sometimes the fish monger will do it for you.

Bad news kids. All fish can have worms. In the processing plants, the filets going to higher end distributors are light boxed. The rest are just visually inspected. While it is kind of gross, most of the time you don't even know they are there since they are the same color as the fish flesh. I guess its just another protein source.
