A very interesting underwater reality took over the base of the seas in Portimão, far in your diving schools in Lisbon , the newspaper Público reported . Four Navy ships are now the backdrop to the Ocean Revival underwater park and would be the comfortable home of several species of snails, octopuses, mackerels and other fish and mollusks. Moreover, ships continue to be a massive attraction for hundreds of divers from various countries.
1 year after being trashed, under the watchful eye of many dive school teachers in Lisbon and throughout the country, Navy boats - a corvette, sea patrol, frigate and oceanographic boat - today have the mission of to host the marine life - fauna and flora - of the area and also to make up a flourishing tourist attraction.
Underwater Park of Portimão welcomes lots of diving fans from Lisbon and the entire country.
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 all the ships that it is no longer feasible to distinguish the initial color of these ships. The vessels were organized in such a way as to ease the entrance of professional divers and students out of 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 full knowledge of these vessels. The invention of a comprehensive ecosystem in the region of sunken ships turned into a matter of months. The mussels which were attached to the hooves drawn the octopuses and the sea currents did the rest.
The four sunken ships now house dozens of marine algae, fish and shellfish species
Just in the Zambezi are read more far over two dozen distinct species brought on by the larvae that were being sent from one vessel to another. The underwater park is acting as an artificial reef, which can help to boost biodiversity in that region. Just 'Oliveira e Carmo' is home to 22 species, such as sea bream, porpoise, porpoise and barnacles. And others known to the general public.
But other species have already been spotted near the ships, particularly moonfish, crow fish, shellfish and perhaps even small dolphins. Evidence that man doesn't always impact character in a negative way and that, when interventions are well planned and implemented, they can be quite effective and have favorable consequences in the regions in which they're inserted, if within the range of a dip in Lisbon or even the 30 meters deep, in Portimão, Algarve.
