The Government Council met today in plenary, deciding to authorize the opening of the public tender for the “Installation of Artificial Reef in the Sea of ​​Madeira”, by sinking the Afonso Cerqueira corvette in the Cabo Girão Marine Park. The vessel was transferred by the Portuguese Navy to the Regional Government of Madeira with the aim of creating an artificial reef.

The creation of artificial reefs, explains the GR, is a way of promoting various activities of socio-economic relevance, such as increasing fish resources, increasing biodiversity, and developing underwater tourism.
