A very interesting submerged reality took on the base of the seas in Portimão, far from your diving schools in Lisbon , the paper Público reported . Four Navy ships are now the backdrop to the Ocean Revival underwater park and would be the comfortable home of many species of snails, octopuses, mackerels and other fish and mollusks. Ships continue to be a huge attraction for countless sailors from various countries.
1 year after being sunk, under the watchful eye of many dive school teachers in Lisbon and across the country, Navy boats - a corvette, sea patrol, frigate and oceanographic vessel - today have the mission of to host the marine life - flora and fauna - of the region and also to constitute a lucrative tourist attraction.
Underwater Park Portimão welcomes many diving fans from Lisbon and the whole nation.
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 way in symbiosis with all the ships it is no longer feasible to differentiate the original color of these boats. The boats were arranged in such a way as to ease the entry of professional divers and students from diving schools in Lisbon.
It needs to be remembered 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 check here did the remainder.
The four submerged ships now house dozens of marine fish, fish and shellfish species
Just in the Zambezi are there over two dozen scuba diving knives reviews different species brought on by the larvae which read more were being sent from 1 container to another. The underwater park is acting as an artificial reef, which can help to increase biodiversity in that region. Only '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 spotted near the ships, especially moonfish, crow fish, shellfish and even little dolphins. Evidence that individual does not always impact nature in a negative manner and that, when interventions are well arranged and implemented, they may be quite effective and have favorable effects in the regions where they're inserted, whether within the range of a dive in Lisbon or even the 30 meters deep, in Portimão, Algarve.
