The Repel Sharks Shark Deterrent Canister uses technology developed by scientists at Shark Defense Technology, who have been featured on BBC, the Discovery Channel, Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe, Mythbusters and more. The canister contains a natural semiochemical derived from putrefied shark tissue which affects olfaction (smell) and gustation (taste) in a wide variety of shark species. Our Technology: Does not affect market-valuable bony fish (teleosts), is not based on the old (US Navy) "SharkChaser", is not copper acetate, maleic acid, or sodium lauryl (dodecyl) sulfate, is not based on dyes, such as nigrosine, is non-lethal to sharks, is not an electronic, visual, or acoustic product, and is able to be incorporated into materials and formulations. This product is typically used when sharks are present during fish tagging studies, fishing tournaments, and when releasing weakened fish near sharks. Hold the can with the nozzle facing outwards, slightly downward and away from your body and others. It is best to aim the nozzle at the water. Firmly depress they grey trigger at the top of the can until it latches. Repellent will begin to spray out. Do not depress the trigger with the can facing upwards. This will release the propellant gas and not the repellent. Try to produce a repellent cloud around your fish. The chemical repellent will travel with the current. The semiochemical requires, on average, 30 seconds after initial contact to repel requiem sharks.
