A very interesting underwater reality took over the bottom of the seas in Portimão, far in your diving schools in Lisbon , the paper Público reported . Four Navy ships are now the background to the Ocean Revival underwater park and are the cozy home of many species of snails, octopuses, mackerels and additional fish and mollusks. Ships continue to be a massive attraction for countless sailors from several nations.
One year after being sunk, 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 assignment of to sponsor the marine life - flora and fauna - of the area and to constitute a lucrative tourist attraction.
Underwater Park of Portimão welcomes many diving fans from Lisbon and the entire nation.
Opened by 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 this manner in symbiosis with all the ships that it is no longer feasible to differentiate the initial color of these boats. The vessels were arranged in such a way as to ease the entrance of specialist divers and pupils from diving schools in Lisbon.
It should be recalled that the average time of stay at 30 meters doesn't exceed 40 minutes, which suggests a few visits for a full knowledge of the vessels. The invention of a comprehensive ecosystem in the area of ships turned into a matter of months. The mussels that were attached to the hooves attracted the octopuses and the sea currents did the rest.
The four submerged ships currently house dozens of marine algae, fish and shellfish species
Only in the Zambezi are there more than two dozen distinct 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, click here much less known to the public.
However, other species have been seen near the ships, especially moonfish, crow fish, lilies and perhaps even little dolphins. Evidence that individual doesn't always affect nature in a negative manner and when interventions are well planned diver knife and implemented, they may be very powerful and have favorable effects in the areas in which they're inserted, whether within the range of a dip in Lisbon or even the 30 meters deep, in Portimão, Algarve.
