Boring Sponge (Cliona celata)

Series of top and side view illustrations of the Boring Sponge

The Boring Sponge (Cliona celata) is found worldwide but abundant in southern New England and the western Atlantic Ocean. It is commonly found around lagoons and coral reefs. It has a tendency of breaking down and creating holes in mollusks or shells or shelled creatures. As a result, they are featureless and seen as lumps at the bottom of a hole. It can be yellow or orange with a thick, encrusting form and small pores. Its ability to take host on shells makes them a great danger to shellfish farming. This sponge is a filter feeder, and like most sponges, reproduced both sexually and asexually.

The Boring Sponge has an overall diameter between 23.6”-39.4” (60-100 cm) and height of 11.8”-19.7” (30-50 cm).

Porifera, or sponges, are multicellular organisms with pores that filter water. Most sponges live in marine environments, brackish and freshwater environments. Sponges were the first creatures to branch off of the evolutionary tree, which means they are the sister to all other living creatures.
