From the 215 records of sponges in Indian museums', only 20 specimens were reported from Orissa coast before 1920. The collections were made (1908-1910) by trawl in Golden Crown and Investigator expeditions mostly from depths of 36-54 m. Thereafter, there has been no information regarding the coral-based sedentary organisms off Orissa coast.
