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 are 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 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 to make up a flourishing tourist attraction.
Underwater Park Portimão welcomes lots of diving enthusiasts from Lisbon and the whole 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 fauna and flora are in such a manner in symbiosis with all the boats it's no longer feasible to distinguish the original color of the boats. The boats 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 understanding of these vessels. The invention of a comprehensive ecosystem in the area of sunken ships was 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 currently house dozens of marine fish, shellfish and fish species
Only in the Zambezi are there more than two dozen different species attracted by the larvae which were being shipped from 1 container to another. The underwater park is behaving as an artificial reef, which can help to boost 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 general public.
But other species have been seen near the ships, particularly moonfish, crow fish, shellfish and perhaps even little dolphins. more info Proof that man does not always affect nature in a negative way and that, when interventions are well planned and implemented, they can be quite effective and have positive 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.
