Rumored Buzz on divers knife sheath
An extremely interesting 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 background to the Ocean Revival underwater park and are the comfortable home of several species of snails, octopuses, mackerels and additional fish and mollusks. Moreover, ships continue to be a huge attraction for hundreds of divers from several nations.
1 year after being sunk, under the watchful eye of several dive school teachers in Lisbon and throughout the country, Navy boats - a corvette, sea patrol, frigate and oceanographic boat - now have the mission 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 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 heaps of oysters, barnacles, porkfish, sea bream and sea bass.

The boats were organized in such a way as to facilitate the entry of professional divers and students out of diving schools in Lisbon.
It should be remembered that the average time of stay at 30 meters does not exceed 40 minutes, which suggests a few visits for a complete knowledge of the vessels. The invention of a comprehensive ecosystem in the region of sunken ships was a matter of months. The mussels which were attached to the hooves drawn the octopuses and the sea currents did the rest.
The four sunken ships currently house dozens of marine fish, shellfish and fish species
Only in the Zambezi are there over two dozen distinct species brought on by the larvae that 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 area. Only '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 seen near the ships, especially moonfish, crow fish, lilies and perhaps even little dolphins.
