One of the fisheries department officials stated that this snake primarily resides deep sea unless it ventures near the coast in search of food. He also added that Hydrophis Gracilis survives on small fish and sea organisms.

The sea snake caught by the Vizag fisherman is said to have the ability to move very fast in the water, alongside being venomous. It is said that its bite can take lives in rapid succession, and instant medical attention must be given. The trapped snake was later released into the sea.
