Meat-Eating Sponges?

The Christian Science Monitor has an interesting little piece on the efforts of marine biologists to take a census of ocean life:
They've discovered, for instance, meat-eating sea sponges, and they've tracked a blue-fin tuna as it crossed the Pacific three times in less than two years.
Link. Hold the phone—meat-eating sponges? If one of those things got loose, not even Steve McQueen would be able to save us. Especially since he's been dead for twenty-five years.

What I find truly amazing is that the blue-fin tuna managed to avoid the clutches of the meat-eating sponges.
