Description: Sponge ( Phylum Porifera ) for sale at the Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks . Sponge harvesting is an important industry to Florida . Sponge is a marine invertebrate . A sponge , like coral and the sea anemone may be immobile as a seaweed , but it qualifies as an animal on the basis of the nature of its reproductive organs and its developmental pattern as well as their cell structure . Sponges are the simplest of multicellular creatures , lacking body organs and a mouth ; they filter food and oxygen from the water . They are mainly sedentary , and vary from tiny cups to wide encrustations .
