A very interesting underwater reality took on the bottom of the seas in Portimão, far in the 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 several species of snails, octopuses, mackerels and additional fish and mollusks. In addition, ships continue to be a massive attraction for hundreds of divers from several countries.
1 year after being trashed, under the watchful eye of several dive school instructors in Lisbon and throughout the nation, Navy ships - a corvette, ocean patrol, frigate and oceanographic boat - now have the assignment of to host the marine life - flora and fauna - of the area and to make up 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 the boats that it is no longer feasible to distinguish the initial color of the ships. The vessels were organized in such a way as to facilitate the entry of specialist divers and students from diving schools in Lisbon.
It needs to be remembered 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 area of ships was a matter of months. The mussels that were attached to the hooves drawn the octopuses and the sea currents did the rest.
