Nassarius is a genus of sea snails, marine gastropod molluscs in the family Nassariidae. Most Nassarius species are very active scavengers, feeding on the flesh of dead fish, etc. They often burrow into marine substrates and then wait with only their siphon protruding, until they smell nearby food.

Its diet consists of detritus, leftover/uneaten food, decaying fish and other organics, as well as fish waste.
