October through February is also prime season for squid, sandfish
and king crab off the east coast of the Korean peninsula, and it is not unusual that there would be high numbers of boats at sea, said Kim Do-hoon, a professor of fisheries science at Bukyong National University in Busan.
Yet, from all these known fish prey species, only Pacific sandfish
was caught in trawls in both river areas, but in very small numbers.

Ongoing efforts to develop simple low-technology approaches to culturing sandfish
(Holothuria scabra), a high-value tropical sea cucumber species, have a broad range of potential benefits in restoring coastal livelihoods and ecological function.
Therefore, large-scale commercial aquaculture has only been developed for a small number of the most valuable species: the temperate Japanese sea cucumber, Apostichopusjaponicus; and the tropical sandfish

The biological inspiration for our sand-swimming robot is the sandfish
lizard, which inhabits the Sahara desert in Africa and rapidly buries into and swims within sand," said Goldman.
lizard wriggles through desert sands like a sci-fi monster.
in the Desert, Miya's first book, is about a boy sandfish
that rescues a jackrabbit's eggs and receives a reward.
Participants came across camels, gazelles, and in some cases, deer, goats and sandfish
(a species of skink that swims through the sand).
Hatchery production of sandfish
(Holothuria scabra) has been conducted on an experimental scale in the Pacific region (Pitt & Duy 2004, Purcell 2004, Purcell 2005), and includes the production of thousands of juveniles.
Once the 35-centimetre-long sandfish
is submerged, it tucks its limbs into its sides and propels itself forward through a granular medium like sand by wiggling from side to side.
