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 would be the cozy home of several species of snails, octopuses, mackerels and other fish and mollusks. Ships are still a massive attraction for countless sailors from several nations.
One year after being sunk, under the watchful eye of several dive school teachers in Lisbon and across the nation, Navy boats - a corvette, sea patrol, frigate and oceanographic vessel - now have the mission of to sponsor the marine life - flora and fauna - of the area 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 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 that it is no longer possible to differentiate the initial color of these boats. The more info vessels were arranged in such a way as to ease the entrance of specialist divers and pupils from diving schools in Lisbon.
It needs to be read more remembered that the average time of stay at 30 meters does not exceed 40 minutes, which suggests a few visits for a complete knowledge of the vessels. The creation of a comprehensive ecosystem in the region of sunken ships was a matter of months. The mussels which were attached to the hooves drawn the octopuses and the sea currents did the remainder.
The four submerged ships now house dozens of marine algae, shellfish and fish species
Just in the Zambezi are far more than two dozen different species brought on from the larvae which were being sent from one container to another. The underwater park is behaving as an artificial reef, which can help to increase biodiversity in that area. Just 'Oliveira e Carmo' is home to 22 species, such as sea bream, porpoise, porpoise and barnacles. And others less known to the public.
But other species have been seen close to 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 have been well arranged and implemented, they can be very powerful and have positive effects in the regions in which they're inserted, whether within the reach of a dive in Lisbon or even the 30 meters deep, in Portimão, Algarve.
