Many sea cucumbers are valued as food and as a source of medicine, and Stichopus is a commonly exploited genus. Species are used for both food and medicine. For example in Malaysia they are known as gamat, and they are used to make "gamat water" and "gamat oil", which are tonics for treating wounds, gastric ulcers, and pain.
