What are Shark repellents?

Shark repellents are used to protect people from sharks by driving them away from areas where they might pose a threat to humans. These repellents aim to prevent sharks from attacking by affecting their senses, such as vision, smell, and electroreception. There are various types of shark repellents, including magnetic, electric, sound, semiochemical, and visual repellents. They are available in the form of surf leashes, rubber bands, spray cans, and wetsuits. Some are more suitable for surfers, while others are more comfortable for divers and occasional swimmers.

For example, the Ocean Guardian Freedom+ Surf has been shown to repel both white sharks and bull sharks, reducing the risk of being bitten by about 60%. However, it is critical to mention that no repellent can guarantee complete protection from a shark attack, and the effectiveness of these devices may vary depending on the shark species and the specific product used.

It is compulsory to follow scientific research and evidence when considering shark repellents, as some products on the market may not have been thoroughly tested or proven to be effective. In addition, it is necessary to remember that using shark repellent should not replace other safety measures and precautions when entering the ocean.
