An extremely interesting underwater reality took on 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. Ships continue to be a massive attraction for countless sailors from several countries.
One year after being sunk, under the watchful eye of many dive school instructors in Lisbon and across the nation, Navy ships - a corvette, ocean patrol, frigate and oceanographic vessel - today have the assignment of to sponsor the marine life - fauna and flora - of the region and also to constitute a lucrative 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 heaps 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 differentiate the initial color of the boats. The vessels were organized in such a way as to ease the entrance of professional divers and pupils 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 complete knowledge of the best diving knife vessels. The invention of a comprehensive ecosystem in the region of sunken ships was a matter of months. The mussels which were attached to the click here hooves drawn the octopuses and the sea currents did the rest.
The four sunken ships currently house dozens of marine algae, shellfish and fish species
Just in the Zambezi are there more than two dozen different species brought on from the larvae that were being sent from 1 container to another. The underwater park is behaving as an artificial reef, which is helping to increase biodiversity in that region. Just 'Oliveira e Carmo' is home to 22 species, including sea bream, porpoise, porpoise and barnacles. And others, much less known to the public.
However, other species have been spotted near the ships, especially moonfish, crow fish, lilies and even little dolphins. Proof that man does not always impact character in a negative way and that, when interventions have been well arranged and implemented, they can be quite powerful and have favorable effects in the areas in which they're inserted, whether within the reach of a dip in Lisbon or even the 30 meters deep, in Portimão, Algarve.
