The Dobsonfly larva is found in relatively non-polluted water so they are valued in bio-monitoring studies (Hall, 2008).

The larvae molt 10-12 times and require one to three years to complete their development (Hall, 2008).

The larvae are great bait to use for fishing, but uncommon to find in the stomachs of fish in nature, probably because they hide themselves under rocks where they are difficult to find (Hall, 2008).
