Repel sharks, while not scaring away valuable fish

Shark by-catch in commercial long-line fishing and sport fishing results in reduced fish hauls, risk of injury to fishermen and damaged gear, plus time wasted removing dead or dying sharks

 

HISTORY: 

In reports that date as far back as the 1700's fishermen have hung dead sharks on their boats to ward off living sharks

The SharkTec team has spent the past 15 years performing thousands of tests on chemicals extracted from decaying shark tissue, narrowing the universe down to a handful of active molecules which scare sharks away, but not your fish

RESULTS: 

Applied to bait, our chum repellent can drop fishermen’s shark by-catch by 68%

 The SharkTec team have successfully tested its repellent on 20 species of coastal sharks that cause the most trouble for commercial and recreational fishermen
