SharkTec have manufactured the first proven aerosol used to deter sharks.
The aerosol is made from petrified shark tissue that is proven to deter sharks. When released, a cloud of repellent ensues that signals potential danger to the sharks, as SharkTec is dispersed the sharks sensitive smell will pick it up and their first natural instinct is to move on.
So what is the science behind this repellent?
When sharks die, they have a natural defence mechanism that allows them to emit a signal to warn of a potential threat in the area. As SharkTec uses petrified shark, the smell of SharkTec is comparable to a rotting shark. When a shark smells a decaying shark, they naturally avoid that are for fear of danger. Using Semiochemicals derived from decomposed sharks, SharkTec is able to offer a natural solution which triggers an immediate reaction in sharks.
Keeping a can of SharkTec in your boat, or on yourself will give piece of mind when the sharks move in.
