During a recent visit to kavaratti island (Lakshadweep) the local people were seen collecting the sipunculid Sipunculus indicus Peters from the intertidal region for using as bait. The same was seen at Chetlat and Kiltan islands in 1987. Apparently it is collected for bait from all the islands of the Lakshadweep. Locally it is known as Kondi and Vembolu.
