Significance to humans

It is documented that the heteronemertean, Cerebratulus lacteus, (tapeworm) was frequently collected and used as bait by sport fishermen in the United States, at least into the middle of the twentieth century. Another large heteronemertean used as bait in South Africa and Mozambique is Polybra-chiorhynchus dayi, also referred to as tapeworm by fishermen. Other uses of anoplan nemerteans are not known.
