An extremely 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 comfortable home of many species of snails, octopuses, mackerels and other fish and mollusks. In addition, ships are still a huge attraction for hundreds of divers from various countries.
1 year after being trashed, under the watchful eye of many dive school instructors in Lisbon and throughout the country, Navy ships - a corvette, sea patrol, frigate and oceanographic boat - today have the assignment of to host the marine life - fauna and flora - of the region and also to make up a flourishing tourist attraction.
Underwater Park of Portimão welcomes many diving enthusiasts from Lisbon and the entire nation.
Opened by 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 fauna and flora are in this manner in symbiosis with all the boats it is no longer feasible to differentiate the initial color of the boats. The boats were organized in such a way as to ease the entry of professional divers and pupils out of diving schools in Lisbon.
It needs to be remembered that the average time of stay at 30 meters does not exceed 40 minutes, which implies a few visits for a complete understanding 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 read more 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 check here are far more than two dozen different species attracted from the larvae which were being sent from one vessel to another. The underwater park is behaving as an artificial reef, which can help to increase biodiversity in that area. Just 'Oliveira e Carmo' is home to 22 species, such as sea bream, porpoise, porpoise and barnacles. And others known to the public.
But other species have been seen close to the ships, especially moonfish, crow fish, shellfish and perhaps even small dolphins. Evidence that individual 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 effects in the regions where they're inserted, if within the reach of a dive in Lisbon or even the 30 meters deep, in Portimão, Algarve.
