The food and feeding behavior of the suctorial nemerteanTortus tokmakovae Chernyshev, 1991, inhabiting the intertidal zone of Peter the Great Bay are studied. Laboratory observations show that this tortus is capable of attacking and consuming 6 species of amphipods, Mysidae gen. sp. mysids andPandalus sp. shrimps. Moreover, the tortuses suck the tissues of various dead crustaceans. Several tortuses may together attack and consume one amphipod. It is suggested thatT. tokmakovae play a significant role in intertidal communities.
