Distribution of sponges on the La Guajira continental shelf, Colombian Caribbean. During the exploration of the soft calcareous bottoms of the continental shelf of La Guajira Department, 47 different species of sponges were identified in the classes Demospongiae and Calcarea. From bottom trawling carried out throughout the continental shelf on the bathymetric fringes of 10 and 50 m, it was found that the number of species is larger at 50 m depth, mainly in areas to the north and south where…

Several morphological and structural features of the non-sessile forms differ in the two environments, but the difference in body shape seems to play the most relevant role in enhancing the colonization of incoherent substrates.
