Shark Shield® Technology

Shark Shield® Technology

 

Sharks have short-range electrical receptors in their snouts called the “Ampullae of Lorenzini” used for finding food.

Ocean Guardian’s Shark Shield Technology has been developed to specifically take advantage of these highly sensitive receptors, creating a powerful three-dimensional electrical field which cause spasms turning the sharks away, including Great Whites. As fish are without these receptors, Shark Shield Technology has negligible effect on them.

Shark Shield® Technology

Shark Shield Technology consists of two electrodes, which when both are submerged, emit a three-dimensional electrical field surrounding the user or area. When a shark comes within a few metres, the field (emitted by the device) causes the shark to experience muscle spasms. This does NOT harm the shark in any way, merely producing a high level of discomfort.

Shark Shield Technology is the world’s most scientifically proven and independently tested electrical shark deterrent.

Nothing is more effective.

Fact 1

"Shark Shield almost 100% effective as a shark deterrent"

Australian Geographic

FACT 2

Shark Shield Technology effectively reduces the probability of shark attack

FACT 3

Shark Shield Technology effectively deters white sharks attacking seal decoy

FACT 4

The FREEDOM+ Surf is proven to deter Great Whites

FACT 5

Shark Shield Technology does not attract sharks

Despite the low chance of a person being bitten by a shark, there are serious associated costs. Electronic deterrents are currently the only types of personal deterrent with empirical evidence of a substantial reduction in the probability of being bitten by a shark. We aimed to predict the number of people who could potentially avoid being bitten by sharks in Australia if they wear personal electronic deterrents.

Here, researchers assessed the ability of the Ocean Guardian SCUBA7 and Kevlar material to reduce the likelihood of blacktip reef sharks, Carcharhinus melanopterus, from feeding, and to minimise injuries from shark bites.

This research by Collins proves that Shark Shield’s electrical impulses do not attract sharks: “It is true that the electroreceptive system is extremely sensitive (in the µV range). However, in practical terms and this has been born out in many behavioral tests, the electroreceptive system is a relatively short distance sense often working in the 30-60cm range.
