Natural Sea Sponges possess remarkable powers of regeneration. Their natural reproductive cycles ensure they can re-grow lost parts and pieces broken off by water currents. They can also settle in another location and re-grow into a clone of the parent sponge.
The natural sea sponge is a renewable resource from the sea which has been harvested for over 150yrs. Wild harvest divers use specific techniques to collect the sea sponges, carefully preserving the base (roots) of the sponge, ensuring the sponge has the ability to regenerate and re-grow back to its original form. If not harvested, sea sponges have a life span of approximately 10 years, harvesting allows for re-generation and extended life.
Sea Sponge populations are harvested carefully to ensure minimal disruption to the harvest area and to assist and promote regeneration of the sea sponges for future harvest and collection. It is in our best interests to ensure the long-term sustainability of sea sponges in their natural environment, and for this reason we promote and support only sustainable harvest and collection methods.
