The Ocean Guardian has been developed in partnership with leading physicists and biologists. This long-range shark deterrent solution will not only protect beach goers as a beach barrier, aquaculture, yachting, etc. but significantly reduce the environmental impacts caused by using shark nets, drum lines and culling.
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.
