Ocean Guardian – Shark Shield


Company Announcements:
(reported by the Company)
Elevator Pitch:

In 2018, the Shark Shield company became Ocean Guardian®. The change of name reflects our bigger ambition – to make you safe whatever you enjoy doing in the Ocean – while also protecting the planet we call home.

Ocean Guardian, powered by Shark Shield Technology, is the world’s only scientifically proven and independently tested electrical shark deterrent. Government approved and developed over two decades of research, Ocean Guardian’s patented technology creates a powerful three-dimensional electrical field which causes safe but unbearable spasms in shark’s short-range electrical receptors, turning sharks away - including Great Whites. Nothing is more effective.

Ocean Guardian safety products are the ultimate ocean guardian – providing peace of mind for surfers, divers, and ocean lovers around the world, while supporting the conservation of marine life by removing the need for shark nets and culling.
