An extremely interesting underwater reality took over the base of the seas in Portimão, far in your diving schools in Lisbon , the newspaper Público reported . Four Navy ships are now the backdrop to the Ocean Revival underwater park and are the cozy home of many species of snails, octopuses, mackerels and additional fish and mollusks. Ships are a huge attraction for countless sailors from several nations.
One year after being sunk, under the watchful eye of several dive school instructors in Lisbon and across the nation, Navy boats - a corvette, ocean patrol, frigate and oceanographic vessel - 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 nation.
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 flora and fauna are in this manner in symbiosis with all the boats that it is no longer possible to distinguish the initial color of these boats. The vessels were arranged website in such a way as to facilitate the entrance of specialist divers and students out of diving schools in Lisbon.
It needs to be remembered that the average time of stay at 30 meters does not exceed 40 minutes, which implies several visits for a full understanding of these vessels. The invention of a comprehensive 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 now house dozens of marine algae, fish and shellfish species
Just in the Zambezi are far over two dozen distinct species brought on from the larvae that were being sent from one vessel to another. The underwater park is acting as an artificial reef, which is helping to boost biodiversity in that region. Just 'Oliveira e Carmo' is home to 22 species, such as sea bream, porpoise, porpoise and barnacles. And others less known to the public.
However, other species have been spotted close to the ships, especially moonfish, crow fish, lilies and even small dolphins. Evidence that man does not always impact character in a negative manner and that, when interventions are well planned and implemented, they can be quite effective and have positive effects in the areas in which they're inserted, if within the range of a dip in Lisbon or even the 30 meters deep, in Portimão, Algarve.
