Over the past few years Cyprus has been sinking ships in order to create artificial reefs. The need for this initiative has been the dwindling fish stocks around the island.
The project is being financed to a great extent by the EU fisheries programme which has been running from 2007. Funding for the first reef was supported by the programme. Contributions to the project have been made by the Cyprus Tourism Organisation (CTO) and the Cyprus Dive Centre Association.
Dive In Limassol on 3rd September 2016, were asked to take part in the public rescue displays in Limassol with the Limassol Professional Life Guard Association.This Diver Rescue was just one of the many scenarios, they showed, others included a jet ski accident, an inflatable boat overturned and swimmers in distress.
We had great fun with the Life Guards, and the Marine Police who kindly gave us special permission to fire off the distress flares.
This event was covered by the local news channels and watched by several Limassol MPS and well as a large audience on the beach.
