An extremely 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 backdrop to the Ocean Revival underwater park and are the comfortable home of several species of snails, octopuses, mackerels and additional fish and mollusks. Moreover, ships continue to be a massive attraction for countless sailors from various countries.
One year after being sunk, under the watchful eye of many dive school teachers in Lisbon and throughout the nation, Navy boats - a corvette, sea patrol, frigate and oceanographic boat - now 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 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 fauna and flora are in such a manner in symbiosis with all the boats that it is no longer possible to differentiate the initial color of these boats. The vessels were arranged in such a website 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 does not exceed 40 minutes, here which implies several visits for a full understanding of these vessels. The creation of a complete ecosystem in the area of ships turned into a matter of months. The mussels which were attached to the hooves drawn the octopuses and the sea currents did the rest.
The four sunken ships currently house dozens of marine fish, shellfish and fish species
Only in the Zambezi are there more than two dozen distinct species brought on by the larvae that were being sent from 1 container to another. The underwater park is acting as an artificial reef, which is helping to boost biodiversity in that region. Only '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 spotted near the ships, particularly moonfish, crow fish, shellfish and even small dolphins. Proof that individual does not always affect nature in a negative way and when interventions have been well planned and implemented, they may be very effective and have positive consequences in the regions where they are inserted, whether within the range of a dip in Lisbon or the 30 meters deep, in Portimão, Algarve.
