The 5-Second Trick For dive knife straps
A very intriguing underwater reality took over the base of the seas in Portimão, far from the diving schools in Lisbon , the paper Público reported . Four Navy ships are now the background to the Ocean Revival underwater park and would be the comfortable home of several species of snails, octopuses, mackerels and other fish and mollusks. Ships continue to be a massive attraction for hundreds of divers from various countries.
1 year after being trashed, under the watchful eye of many dive school teachers in Lisbon and throughout the country, Navy ships - a corvette, sea patrol, frigate and oceanographic boat - today have the assignment of to host the marine life - fauna and flora - 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 all the boats it is no longer possible to distinguish the more info original color of these ships. The boats were organized in such a way as to ease the entry of professional divers and pupils from diving schools in Lisbon.
It needs to be recalled that the average time of stay at 30 meters does not exceed 40 minutes, which implies several visits for a full knowledge of these vessels. The invention of a comprehensive ecosystem in the region of ships was a matter of weeks. The mussels that were attached to the hooves attracted the octopuses and the sea currents did 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 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, such as sea bream, porpoise, porpoise and barnacles. And others known to the public.
But other species have already been spotted close to the ships, especially moonfish, crow fish, shellfish and perhaps even little dolphins. Proof that individual doesn't 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.
