A very interesting underwater reality took over the bottom of the seas in Portimão, far in your diving schools in Lisbon , the paper Público reported . Four Navy ships are now the background to the Ocean Revival underwater park and are the comfortable home of many species of snails, octopuses, mackerels and additional fish and mollusks. Ships are still a huge attraction for hundreds of divers from several nations.
1 year after being sunk, under the watchful eye of several dive school teachers in Lisbon and throughout the nation, Navy boats - a corvette, sea patrol, frigate and oceanographic vessel - now have the mission of to host the marine life - fauna and flora - of the area and also to make up a lucrative tourist attraction.
Underwater Park of Portimão welcomes many diving fans from Lisbon and the entire nation.
Opened at the end of October 2012, the underwater park is located 30 meters deep, where pontificam dozens of oysters, barnacles, porkfish, sea bream and sea bass. The surrounding flora and fauna are in this manner in symbiosis with the ships that it is no longer feasible to differentiate read more the initial color of the boats. The vessels get more info were organized in such a way as to ease the entrance of professional divers and pupils from diving schools in Lisbon.
It needs to be recalled that the average time of stay at 30 meters does not exceed 40 minutes, which implies several visits for a complete understanding of these vessels. The creation of a complete ecosystem in the region of ships turned into a matter of weeks. The mussels that were attached to the hooves drawn the octopuses and the sea currents did the remainder.
The four submerged ships now house dozens of marine algae, shellfish and fish species
Only in the Zambezi are there more than two dozen distinct species brought on from the larvae that were being sent from 1 container to another. The underwater park is acting as an artificial reef, which is helping to boost biodiversity in that area. Just 'Oliveira e Carmo' is home to 22 species, such as sea bream, porpoise, porpoise and barnacles. And others less known to the general public.
But other species have been seen near the ships, especially moonfish, crow fish, lilies and perhaps even little dolphins. Evidence that man doesn't always impact nature in a negative way and when interventions are well arranged and executed, they can be quite powerful and have favorable effects in the areas in which they are inserted, whether within the range of a dip in Lisbon or the 30 meters deep, in Portimão, Algarve.
