[Annelida] Deep sea worms...shallow marine worms

Dear All,
A couple of unusual questions: is anyone familiar with burrowing 
invertebrate species that pelletize (fecal pellets of 3-5mm diameter) 
deep sea soft clay sediments; and if there are species that produce 
similar-sized pellets in shallow marine/tidal (mud flats) environments? 
Can these shallow marine species be readily 'obtained' and 'farmed' in 
the laboratory?
Many thanks for your help.
Matthew.
