Shark Shield is for professional adventurers, it is the world’s only scientifically proven and independently tested electrical shark deterrent. The Shark Shield FREEDOM7 is a comfortable, lightweight and versatile design for divers, spearfishers, snorkelers, swimmers and ocean kayak fisherman.
Sharks have small short-range electrical receptors in their snouts used for finding food. Shark Shield’s unique three-dimensional electrical waveform instantly turns sharks away by causing unbearable spasms in these sensitive receptors.
Shark Shield’s products have been consistently proven to effectively turn sharks away by the world’s leading scientific experts on sharks. Independent research and testing by universities has resulted in a number of peer reviewed science journals confirming the technologies effectiveness.
The technology and patents have a twenty-year development history, in partnership with organisations such as the world’s leading experts in White Sharks, the KwaZulu-Natal Sharks Board in South Africa. As a result, Shark Shield is trusted by professional adventurers around the world, including Navies, and is mandated safety equipment in many industries.
Shark Shield devices directly support the conservation of sharks by removing the need for culling or other lethal means of managing human and shark interactions. Shark Shield devices have no know long term effects on sharks, and do not affect other ocean creatures.
