Shark Shield is the world’s only scientifically proven electrical shark deterrent, nothing is more effective.
The company’s products are used by surfers, spear-fishermen, divers, ocean kayak fishing and in late 2016 the company launched an innovative new surfing product designed in partnership with 2 x World Surfing Champion Tom Carroll and the world’s leading surf hardware company Ocean & Earth.
Sharks have short-range electrical receptors in their snouts used for finding food, Shark Shield’s patented technology creates a powerful three-dimensional electrical field which causes unbearable spasms in these sensitive receptors turning sharks away, including Great Whites.
Shark Shield technology has been developed over twenty-years in partnership with the world’s leading experts in sharks, including the KwaZulu-Natal Sharks Board in South Africa and independent universities, resulting in peer reviewed science journals confirming the technologies effectiveness in deterring sharks.
In 2017 the company announced a technology breakthrough for a new long range shark deterrent utilizing a patented Metamaterial Electromagnetic Transducer, with expectations of repelling sharks within a 100-meter diameter of each unit installed. 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.

With no known permanent harm to sharks the products directly support shark conservation by removing the need for culling or lethal means of enabling humans and sharks to share our oceans; the ultimate ocean guardian.
