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 cozy home of several species of snails, octopuses, mackerels and other fish and mollusks. Ships are still a huge attraction for countless sailors from various nations.
One year after being trashed, under the watchful eye of several dive school teachers in Lisbon and throughout the nation, Navy boats - a corvette, sea patrol, frigate and oceanographic boat - now have the mission of to host the marine life - fauna and flora - of the region and also to make up a flourishing tourist attraction.
Underwater Park Portimão welcomes many diving fans from Lisbon and the entire country.
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 way in symbiosis with the boats it's no longer feasible to distinguish the original color of the boats. The boats were organized in such a way as to ease the entrance of specialist divers and pupils out of diving schools in Lisbon.
It should be remembered 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 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 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 from the larvae which website were being sent from one container to another. The underwater park is behaving as an artificial reef, which can help to boost biodiversity in that area. Only 'Oliveira e Carmo' is home check here to 22 species, including sea bream, porpoise, porpoise and barnacles. And others less known to the public.
But other species have already been spotted close to the ships, especially moonfish, crow fish, shellfish and perhaps even small dolphins. Evidence that individual doesn't always affect nature in a negative way and when interventions have been well planned and executed, they can be quite powerful and have positive consequences in the regions where they are inserted, whether within the range of a dip in Lisbon or even the 30 meters deep, in Portimão, Algarve.
