An extremely interesting submerged reality took on the base of the seas in Portimão, far from the diving schools in Lisbon , the newspaper Público reported . Four Navy ships are now the background to the Ocean Revival underwater park and would be the cozy home of several species of snails, octopuses, mackerels and other fish and mollusks. In addition, ships are a massive attraction for countless sailors from various countries.
One year after being trashed, under the watchful eye of many dive school instructors in Lisbon and throughout the country, Navy ships - a corvette, ocean patrol, frigate and oceanographic boat - today have the assignment of to host the marine life - flora and fauna - of the area and also 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 such a manner in symbiosis with 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 entry of professional divers and pupils out of diving schools in Lisbon.
It needs to be recalled that the average time of stay at 30 meters doesn't exceed 40 minutes, which implies several visits for a full knowledge of the vessels. The invention of a comprehensive ecosystem in the region of ships turned into a matter of weeks. The mussels that were attached to the hooves attracted the octopuses and the sea currents did website the rest.
The four sunken ships currently house dozens of marine fish, shellfish and fish species
Just in the Zambezi are far more than two dozen different species attracted by the larvae which were being sent from 1 container to another. The underwater park is behaving as an artificial reef, which can help to boost biodiversity in that region. Only 'Oliveira e Carmo' is home to 22 species, including sea bream, porpoise, porpoise and barnacles. And others, much less known to the public.
But other species have already been spotted near the ships, particularly moonfish, crow fish, shellfish and perhaps even little dolphins. Evidence that man does not always affect nature in a negative way and that, when interventions have been well arranged and executed, they may be very effective and have positive consequences in the regions in which they're inserted, if within the reach of a dive in Lisbon or the 30 meters deep, in Portimão, Algarve.
