A very interesting underwater reality took over the base of the seas in Portimão, far in your diving schools in Lisbon , the paper Público reported . Four Navy ships are now the backdrop to the Ocean Revival underwater park and are the cozy home of many species of snails, octopuses, mackerels and additional fish and mollusks. Ships are a huge attraction for hundreds of divers from various nations.
1 year after being trashed, under the watchful eye of several dive school teachers in Lisbon and throughout the country, Navy boats - a corvette, sea patrol, frigate and oceanographic boat - today have the assignment of to sponsor the marine life - fauna and flora - of the region and to make up a flourishing tourist attraction.
Underwater Park Portimão welcomes many diving enthusiasts from Lisbon and the whole country.
Opened by the end of October 2012, the underwater park is situated 30 meters deep, where pontificam heaps of oysters, barnacles, porkfish, sea bream and sea bass. The surrounding fauna and flora are in such a way in symbiosis with the ships it's no longer feasible to distinguish the original color of the ships. The boats were arranged in such a way as to facilitate the entry of specialist divers and students out of diving schools in Lisbon.
It should be remembered that the average time of stay at 30 meters does not exceed 40 minutes, which implies a few visits for a complete knowledge of the vessels. The creation of a comprehensive ecosystem in the region of ships was a matter of weeks. The mussels which were attached to the hooves drawn the octopuses and the sea currents did the remainder.
The four sunken ships now house dozens of marine fish, shellfish and fish species
Just in the Zambezi are there more than two dozen different species brought on from the larvae that were being click here sent from one container to another. The underwater park is behaving as an artificial reef, which is helping to increase biodiversity in that region. Just more info 'Oliveira e Carmo' is home to 22 species, such as sea bream, porpoise, porpoise and barnacles. And others, much less known to the public.
However, other species have been seen close to 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 have been well planned and implemented, they may be very effective and have positive consequences in the regions where they are inserted, if within the range of a dive in Lisbon or the 30 meters deep, in Portimão, Algarve.
