Shark Shield TM is a unique shark deterrent system utilizing a
technologically advanced three-dimensional electronic wave form. Shark Shield units are designed for recreational users and
water sports professionals alike and aim to help all people enjoy and
work in the ocean with a new dimension of peace of mind for themselves,
their families and employers.
Shark Shield provides proven protection against all predatory shark
species including Great Whites, Tigers, Zambezi's (Bulls), Makos and
Bronze Whalers, among others. The electronic pulse emitted repels the
shark by inducing muscle spasms via stimulation of the Ampluae of
Lorenzini, the sensory organs present on sharks' snouts. There is no
permanent damage to the animal, or harm to the environment. Shark Shield
products are proven to repel sharks.
Filming shark sequences for commercial use frequently requires
manufacturing an unnatural environment to attract sharks which
can change their behavior and create a heightened danger for humans. The
incorrect deployment of a Shark Shield product either intentionally or
unintentionally could reduce the effectiveness of our products. For both safety and legal reasons we cannot and will not permit this to
occur and have implemented a film and television usage policy which is
Shark Shield products must only be used by film and television
productions after written approval is obtained from either of our
official authorities or Shark Shield Pty Ltd itself and Shark Shield
products must only be used in accordance with the conditional terms
provided by the authority. Both authorities are recognised authorities in the field of
working with sharks and understand Shark Shield technology.
Legal action may be taken against film or
television companies using a Shark Shield for shoots when approval has
not been granted.
No shark deterrent system should be a replacement
for the understanding of sharks and the site you are operating in, as
well as the safety crews you employ. Shark deterrent systems are and
always will be a last line of defense for any shark shoot or shark
site you have in place. Certain water activities inherently involve
the danger of potential shark encounters or attacks. Shark Shield has
proven effective in deterring said instances however, due to the
variables present with ocean and animal behaviors it should not be
considered a completely foolproof system.
