An extremely interesting submerged reality took over the bottom of the seas in Portimão, far in the 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 several species of snails, octopuses, mackerels and additional fish and mollusks. In addition, ships are still a massive attraction for hundreds of divers from several nations.
One year after being trashed, under the watchful eye of several dive school instructors in Lisbon and throughout the country, Navy boats - a corvette, ocean patrol, frigate and oceanographic boat - today have the mission of to sponsor the marine life - fauna and flora - of the area and to constitute a flourishing tourist attraction.
Underwater Park of Portimão welcomes lots of diving enthusiasts from Lisbon and the entire country.
Opened at the end of October 2012, the underwater park is situated 30 meters deep, where pontificam dozens of oysters, barnacles, porkfish, sea bream and sea bass. The surrounding flora and fauna are in such a manner in symbiosis with the boats read more that it is no longer feasible to distinguish dive tool the initial color of the boats. The boats were arranged in such a way as to ease the entry of specialist divers and pupils out of diving schools in Lisbon.
It should be recalled that the average time of stay at 30 meters doesn't exceed 40 minutes, which implies a few visits for a full understanding of the vessels. The invention of a complete ecosystem in the region of sunken ships turned into a matter of weeks. The mussels which were attached to the hooves attracted the octopuses and the sea currents did the rest.
The four submerged ships now house dozens of marine fish, fish and shellfish species
Just in the Zambezi are far more than two dozen distinct species attracted from the larvae that were being shipped from one container to another. The underwater park is acting as an artificial reef, which can help to increase biodiversity in that region. Just 'Oliveira e Carmo' is home to 22 species, including sea bream, porpoise, porpoise and barnacles. And others known to the public.
However, other species have already been seen close to the ships, particularly moonfish, crow fish, lilies and perhaps even small dolphins. Proof that man doesn't always affect character in a negative way and when interventions are well arranged and implemented, they may be quite powerful and have positive consequences in the areas in which they are inserted, if within the range of a dive in Lisbon or website even the 30 meters deep, in Portimão, Algarve.
