Elevator Pitch:

Shark Shield is the world’s only scientifically proven and independently tested electrical shark deterrent, nothing is more effective. The company’s products are used by spear-fishermen, divers, kayak fishing and surfing with a product designed in partnership with 2 x World Surfing Champion Tom Carroll and the world’s leading surf hardware company Ocean & Earth.

Sharks have small short-range electrical receptors in their snouts used for feeding. Shark Shield’s unique three-dimensional electromagnetic 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..

In 2017 the company announce the technology breakthrough of a new long range shark deterrent called Ocean Guardian, utilizing a patented Metamaterial Electromagnetic Transducer, with expectations of repelling sharks within a 100-meter diameter of each unit installed. 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. The new Ocean Guardian transducer is based on technology used to treat patients in the medical field including, oncology, urology and other chronic diseases, with clinical studies demonstrating that the electromagnetic field does not affect the health of humans or ocean life, such as sharks or dolphins.

Shark Shield is trusted by professional adventurers around the world, including navies, military and police divers, and is mandated safety equipment in many industries. If you’re serious about adventure, you wear a Shark Shield.
