How does an osedax worm find its food? Do the larvae/fertilized eggs just float around untiil it hits a bone, or do full grown worms search for food??

I was thinking that maybe living in 1-4 C water, they could just wait it out until they hit the right ecosystem with minimal nutrients stored in the egg. They only then mature when the source is guaranteed.
