The best Side of kayaking knives
An extremely intriguing submerged reality took over the bottom of the seas in Portimão, far from your diving schools in Lisbon , the paper Público reported . Four Navy ships are now the background to the Ocean Revival underwater park and are the comfortable home of several species of snails, octopuses, mackerels and other fish and mollusks. Ships continue to be a huge attraction for hundreds of divers from various nations.
1 year after being trashed, under the watchful eye of many dive school teachers in Lisbon and throughout the country, Navy boats - a corvette, sea patrol, frigate and oceanographic boat - today have the mission of to host the marine life - fauna and flora - of the area and to constitute a lucrative tourist attraction.
Underwater Park 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 flora and fauna are in this manner in symbiosis with all the ships that it is no longer possible to distinguish the initial color of these ships. The boats were arranged in such a way as to facilitate 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 suggests several visits for a full knowledge of the vessels. The creation of a comprehensive ecosystem in the region of ships turned into a matter of months. The mussels that were attached to the hooves attracted the read more octopuses and the sea currents did the rest.
The four sunken ships now house dozens of marine fish, shellfish and fish species
Just in the Zambezi are far over two dozen distinct species attracted by the larvae that were being sent from one vessel to another. The underwater park is acting 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. Proof that individual doesn't always impact nature in a negative way and that, when interventions are well planned and implemented, they can be quite effective and have positive consequences in the regions in which they're inserted, if within the range of a dip in Lisbon or even the 30 meters deep, in Portimão, Algarve.
