Note(s): Nine expeditions were conducted in the Bahamas from 1987 to 1995 for the purpose of collecting marine organisms for biomedical research. Collections concentrated onsponges from various deep water habitats: the fore reefslope and escarpment (30-60 m), the deep fore reef slope and escarpment (60-150 m), and the deep shelf slope (150-922m). A total of 417 sites were sampled throughout the archipelago using the Johnson-Sea-Link and CleliaResearch Submersibles, ROV, and scuba.
