Abstract
    Sixty-nine species of deep-water sponges were collected during the BLOCAL cruise, on the northern part of Norfolk Rise (S. of New Caledonia), between a depth range of 240-2110 m. 49 species are new to science, of which 14 belong to 5 poecilosclerid genera: Hamacantha, Esperiopsis, Lissodendoryx, Stelodoryx, Coelosphaera. 46 species live in south-subtropical water (between 20 and 7°C) and above 700 m on bioclastic sediments, indurated crusts or rocky cliffs. 23 species were collected below a depth of 700 m in antarctic intermediary water (below 7°C). They are mostly erect, pedicellate or foliaceous sponges; a few cushion like species live on pumice stones.
