A significant reduction in the number of incidents of predation
Improvements in the efficiency of operation
Resulting in less time spent at sea

How it Works
Sharks have short-range electrical receptors in their snouts used for finding food, Ocean Guardian’s government approved, and patented technology creates a powerful three-dimensional electrical field which causes unbearable spasms in these sensitive receptors turning sharks away, including Great Whites. You on the other hand, will feel a lot safer. Powered by Shark Shield Technology, Ocean Guardian shark deterrents aren’t just designed to protect you, they protect the ocean too. So there’s no need for shark nets or needless culls. Best of all, it doesn’t harm the shark either.
