ASBURY PARK, N.J. (AP) -- A Jersey shore restaurant is fighting back after a customer posted a video of a worm crawling out of a piece of fish.


 
The video was shot over the weekend at Stella Marina Bar & Restaurant in Asbury Park and shows the thin, pale worm crawling  out of a piece of cod.
 
In a Facebook post, the restaurant criticized customer Jim Guinee for trying to "destroy our reputation and possible livelihoods'' and said it stopped serving the cod dish after the worms were discovered.
 
Guinee tells NJ.com he is an attorney but hasn't taken any legal action against the restaurant.
 
The restaurant also wrote that parasitic roundworms "are frequently found in the guts and in the flesh of fish'' and that they occasionally are missed by inspectors.
