Just some comments on Shark Shield attracting sharks. A sharks Ampullae of Lorenzini, their electro reception, is very short range < 0.5m distance. The field generated by the Shark Shield is immeasurable beyond 6m by the most sensitive scientific instruments. 
An independent study by C. Huveneers (2012) concluded that the Shark Shield does not attract sharks. Professors at the University of Western Australia Oceans Institute also concur that the Shark Shield does not nor it is possible for Sharks to detect Shark Shield from any distance.
A sharks other senses like vision, pressure, smell and hearing are far more sensitive over longer distances than 0.5m and is what attract sharks.

Great Whites could be senior citizens. New research finds that these sharks could live as old as 70.  http://www.southcoasttoday.com/article/20150301/NEWS/150309948/101236/NEWS0301

You're going to need a bigger board! A paddle boarder in California had a close encounter with an eight foot great white. http://www.ocregister.com/articles/shark-652680-grant-attacks.html

Did you see Shark Shield mentioned in the New Yorker?? Great article! http://ow.ly/Mf2zr

Read about Shark Shield's expansion into Florida and the US! http://ow.ly/KOf9u
ST. PETERSBURG — Shark Shield, a device that repels sharks with an electronic force field, sounds like something the movie character Q would create for James Bond.

The Lemon Shark’s unique yellow color helps them blend into the ocean floor. #SharkFacts

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.
