We are happy to report that US Patent 9,456,589 was granted for unique chemical compounds that we have catalogued and tested over many years in the field that show repellency at low concentrations.
We are happy to report that US Patent 9,434,455 was granted for our magnetic shark repellents (a divisional for other embodiments of magnetic-type repellents)!
Some of Sharkdefense’s magnetic technologies are being used and researched by young scientists in other countries! Here is team Robotica Dynasty from Brazil. they are conceptualizing a magnetic shark barrier for their research project, with a little input from Sharkdefense. Good luck with your work!
We at SharkDefense are continually impressed at how well SharkBanz is performing in field tests. Below is the link to Episode III, where three stimulated adult sharks are continuously repelled by a SharkBanz, despite the addition of stimulus. This is the first video we are aware of online where a commerically available magnetic or electromagnetic […]
SharkDefense and Sharkbanz were recently featured on The Henry Ford’s Innovation Nation with Mo Rocca. The segment covers magnetic shark repellents. See the video here with our Dr. Patrick Rice!
Last year, Pat and I declined an opportunity to work again with the Mythbusters for a 2015 episode. We were delighted, this week, to see their latest video, in which they performed an independent test on shark necromones as a repellent. The test and the footage were beautiful! We particularly liked the “Essence of Dead […]
We are pleased to announced that our Dr. Rice has been promoted to the role of Chief Science Officer at Florida Keys Community College! Congratulations Pat!
here are billions upon billions of creatures in the 7-mile deep oceans. Amongst them live the supremely graceful, beautifully evolved, super-predator and most feared animal on Earth — Carcharadon carcharias or great white sharks. In fact, there are 368 species of sharks that inhabit our oceans. Since the 1850s overfishing has changed life under the […]
An American chemist says he’s found a substance – several, in fact – that can repel some of the most fearsome predators in the ocean. He wants to use his discovery to protect them, and us. Eric Stroud stands on a pier on the island of North Bimini in the Bahamas. He looks down into […]
