This could be a number of different insects, cut worms or caterpillars.
Spraying ferns with a insecticide can harm the fronds Using a granular systemic insecticide applied to the soil surface would be recommended.
If you may be seeing any slug damage on any other plants, I have also listed a link about controlling them.
