RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Over the last three years, the percentage of ships arriving in Rio’s Guanabara Bay has increased by 146 percent, according to the Companhia Docas (Dock Company). The port authority believes this year’s maritime traffic will be even higher, drawing some concern form environmentalists.
The company Docas explains in a report by O Globo the important reasons of why there is an enormous increase of naval traffic in the bay. First of all, the port is in a very good condition due to dredging which gained three meters of depth . . .
