Getting My snorkeling knives To Work
An extremely interesting submerged reality took over the base of the seas in Portimão, far from 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 comfortable home of many species of snails, octopuses, mackerels and other fish and mollusks. Ships are a huge attraction for countless sailors from various nations.
One year after being sunk, under the watchful eye of many dive school teachers in Lisbon and throughout the nation, Navy ships - a corvette, sea patrol, frigate and oceanographic vessel - today have the mission of to sponsor the marine life - fauna and flora - of the region and also to constitute a flourishing tourist attraction.
Underwater Park of Portimão welcomes lots of diving enthusiasts from Lisbon and the entire country.
Opened by the end of October 2012, the underwater park is situated 30 meters deep, where pontificam dozens of oysters, barnacles, porkfish, sea bream and sea bass. The surrounding flora and fauna are in such a manner in symbiosis with all the ships that it's no longer possible to differentiate the original color of these boats. The boats were arranged in such a way as to ease the entry of specialist divers and pupils out of diving schools in Lisbon.
It should be recalled that the average time of stay at 30 meters doesn't exceed 40 minutes, which implies a few visits for a full understanding of the vessels. The invention of a complete ecosystem in the region of sunken ships turned into a matter of weeks. The mussels which were attached to the hooves attracted the octopuses and the sea currents did the remainder.
The four sunken ships currently house dozens of marine algae, fish and shellfish species
Just in the Zambezi are there over two dozen distinct species brought on from the best titanium knife larvae that were being shipped from one container to another. The underwater park is acting as an artificial reef, which can help to increase biodiversity in that region. Only 'Oliveira e Carmo' is here home to 22 species, such as sea bream, porpoise, porpoise and barnacles. And others, much less known check here to the public.
However, other species have already been seen close to the ships, particularly moonfish, crow fish, lilies and perhaps even small dolphins. Evidence that individual does not always impact nature in a negative manner and that, when interventions have been well planned and executed, they can be very effective and have favorable effects in the regions in which they are inserted, if within the reach of a dip in Lisbon or even the 30 meters deep, in Portimão, Algarve.
