Bioremediation Mariculture in Zanzibar, Tanzania: A viability assessment of using bath sponge and pearl oyster farms to filter highly polluted waters in the Zanzibar Channel

Bioremediation of polluted water off the coastline of the urban center of Zanzibar—Stone Town, Unguja—was assessed for implementation feasibility through bath sponge and pearl oyster mariculture. A

Marine Spongin: Naturally Prefabricated 3D Scaffold-Based Biomaterial

A thorough and comprehensive coverage of spongin as a naturally prefabricated 3D biomaterial with multifaceted applications with special attention to applications in tissue engineering, adsorption of dyes and extreme biomimetics.

A new species of Agelas from the Zanzibar Archipelago, western Indian Ocean (Porifera, Demospongiae)

A new sponge species from the eastern coast of Unguja Island in the Zanzibar Archipelago is described, characterised by the unique trait of three categories of verticillate spicules (acanthostyles, acanthostrongyles and acanthoxeas).

Sexual reproduction of the potentially cultivable sponge Mycale phyllophila (Porifera, Demospongiae)

The reproductive activity of M. phyllophila lasted for 5–6 months and peaked when the average water temperature was above 25°C, which suggests that water temperature is an important environmental factor influencing the sexual reproduction cycle.



Phylum Porifera Grant, 1836

This work describes 682 valid genera of the extant fauna (of about 1600 nominal genera) in three classes, 25 orders and 127 families; and mentions over 1000 ‘valid’ genera amongst the fossil fauna in six ‘classes’, 30 orders and 245 families.

Farming Sponges to Supply Bioactive Metabolites and Bath Sponges: A Review

Land-based sponge culture still holds great promise, with several small-scale farming operations producing bath sponges or metabolites, and the greatest potential for commercial bath sponge culture is probably for underdeveloped coastal communities, where it can provide an alternative and environmentally friendly source of income.

Developing methods for commercially farming bath sponges in tropical Australia

For aquaculture to supply sufficient and sustainable quantities of bath sponges, suitable farming methods need to be developed. In this study, we developed farming methods for Coscinoderma sp. and

Aquaculture trials of the New Zealand bath‐sponge Spongia (Heterofibria) manipulatus using lanterns

A submarine lantern system was trailed in the aquaculture of explants of the endemic New Zealand bath‐sponge Spongia (Heterofibria) manipulatus to assess the utility of these lanterns for the culture of this species and implications of the growth rate characteristics are discussed.

Growth performance of bath sponge (Spongia officinalis Linnaeus, 1759) farmed on suspended ropes in the Dardanelles (Turkey)

Commercial bath sponge population in the Mediterranean has been recently reduced due to diseases and the depletion of natural banks. The commercial supply is far below the demand on the last 10–15
