The mapping of the entire Portuguese seabed is one of the works that the Portuguese Navy intends to start as soon as the United Nations gives a green light to the extension of the continental shelf.
According to the Chief of Staff of the Armada, Admiral António Mendes Calado, who this morning was received in audience for the presentation of greetings by the Vice-President of the Legislative Assembly of Madeira, Fernanda Cardoso, with the extension of the the continental shelf, Portugal will become one of the European countries with more maritime area of ​​national jurisdiction and, for that reason, “we need to know better so that we can protect and maximise the area.
The Navy will always be a partner for the coastal residents and being here on an island, the sea for you is of particular importance and for us Navy is always the goal to come here reaffirm our ability to collaborate and give the regional authorities every support they need to be able to boost what the sea is in terms of local economy. ”

In this sense, the Chief of Staff of the Navy focused on the importance of knowing the seabed of this extensive platform and much of its potential.
“For the Navy this is important because we do not protect anything that we do not know,” he said, noting that although the ‘first steps’ have already been taken, mapping the seabed will be a ‘generational work’, that is , it will take ten to twenty years.
To help in this work and also to continue our knowledge of our sea, António Mendes Calado informed that, next Friday, the 20th will be delivered the Nines Sines, the third of the ten ships that the Portuguese Navy will receive from the class ‘Viana do Castelo’.
