freshwater fish should be froze first to conk out any parasites.

Not just frozen, but frozen at 0 degrees for 24 hours. Most home freezers are not capable of that.

You cannot kill parasites with any home freezer on the market today.

Be careful, my buddy got some bad "but I froze it for two weeks" ceviche.  Took him months and several doctors to get right.

If you are going to eat it raw only use commercially frozen fish.  Otherwise you could end up crappin through a 50 mesh screen for a month or two...

True for fridge/freezer combo but most plain freezers are capable of below zero. The first craptastic Walmart chest freezer I clicked on goes to -9.4°F.

Whether that is adequate to kill parasites is another argument.

To fish or not to fish? That's a stupid question!

I make walleye ceviche all the time. Sometimes fresh sometimes frozen. I’ve never had an issue with either. Good eating right there!

Never made it but heard you shouldn't make it out of fresh water fish!  Not an expert by any means but you might want to do some investigation on the subject.  Better safe than sorry.  That might be one of those things where you can make it a hundred times out of fresh waer fish and the hundred and first time it kills you.  Not something I would mess with unless I read up on it thoroughly.
