Boiled zaza-mushi, the larvae of the aquatic cossid moth, are laid out on newspaper to be cleaned of river debris in Ina City, Japan. Zaza-mushi hunters must be licensed to harvest the aquatic creatures. The zaza-mushi are sautéed with soy sauce and sugar and eaten as an appetizer. (Man Eating Bugs page 34,35)
