Abstract: Sponges assemblages were sampled in four coastal study regions (Malindi, Kenya; Quirimba Archipelago, northern Mozambique; Inhaca Island, Southern Mozambique and Anakao, Madagascar) in the west Indian Ocean. Sponge species were counted inmultiple 0.5m2 quadrats at depths of between 0 and 20m at a number of sites withinlocalitieswithineach region.Despite the relatively small areas sampled, sponge samples comprised a total of130 species and 70 genera of the classesDemospongiae and Calcarea.
