The 2-Minute Rule for mariner knife
An extremely intriguing 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 comfortable home of many species of snails, octopuses, mackerels and additional 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 - fauna and flora - of the region and also to make up a flourishing tourist attraction.
Underwater Park of Portimão welcomes many diving enthusiasts from Lisbon and the whole nation.
Opened by the end of October 2012, the underwater park is situated 30 meters deep, where pontificam heaps of oysters, barnacles, porkfish, sea bream and sea bass. The surrounding fauna and flora are in such a 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 from 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 complete understanding of the vessels. The creation of a complete ecosystem in the region of ships turned into a matter of months. The mussels which were attached to the hooves attracted the octopuses and the sea currents did the rest.
The four sunken ships now house here dozens of marine algae, shellfish and fish species
Just in the Zambezi are far over two dozen distinct species brought on by the larvae that 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 region. Just 'Oliveira e Carmo' is home to 22 species, including sea bream, porpoise, porpoise and barnacles. And others, much less known to the general public.
But other species have already been spotted close to 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 favorable 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.
