Did you hear about this diver in Australia? They had a Shark Shield on the boat that kept the shark at a distance! http://ow.ly/xWmBX
Chris Rapson, 32, was diving with a group at Glenelg Tyre Reef, an artificial reef near Adelaide, on Sunday when he caught sight of the great white 18 metres below the water.

It is not every day you get up close and personal with a Great White Shark. In June 2014 a group of South Australian divers had the experience of a life time and the footage to show to for it.

Shark Shield - Proven Protection From Sharks
Introduction
Shark Shield is the only scientifically proven and independently tested electronic shark deterrent designed to reduce the risk of an unwanted shark encounter. Used by professionals and navies the world over, Shark Shield is a safety device providing peace of mind to enjoy your free-diving, spearfishing, scuba diving or kayak fishing while supporting the conservation of sharks. 

Shark Shield electronic shark deterrents are the result of over twenty years of scientific research and testing by some of the world’s leading experts in sharks, including the KwaZulu-Natal Shark Board in South Africa. Shark Shield is trusted by professional divers in the US and Australian Navies (NATO # 4220/661582710) and is mandated safety equipment in many industries such as the Australian Professional Abalone Diving.

All predatory sharks have highly sensitive electrical receptors called “Ampullae of Lorenzini” located in their snouts. These tiny gel filled sacs can only sense electrical current from prey at very close distances, typically much less than one meter. As sharks can only sense electrical currents at very short distances and all electrical currents are dispersed rapidly in water, the myth that sharks can sense electrical current at great distances is not true; as a result electronic shark deterrents do not attract sharks.

The powerful but localized electrical field generated by Shark Shield devices causes the sharks gel filled sacs to spasm and the shark to flee the immediate area. There are no known long term adverse effects to the shark and as a result Shark Shield devices support the conservation of sharks by removing the need for culling or other lethal means of managing human and shark interactions. Shark Shield devices do not affect other ocean creatures.

Trusted by thousands of professionals around the world Shark Shield is a must have piece of safety equipment, just like a seat belt. It is comfortable and lightweight, stored in a neoprene pouch that easily attaches to your ankle, with the low drag antenna trailing behind providing complete freedom to enjoy your free-diving, spearfishing, scuba diving or kayak fishing. Our rechargeable lithium ion battery provides up to seven hours of use, giving you plenty of time to enjoy the ocean with the confidence of knowing you are protected by Shark Shield and a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee.
