On a recent trip up to north WA Drystore tested out a shark repellent theory we had been contemplating for some time…
It involved the new Aimrite Wetsuit, some acrylic paint and a stencil. The rest just fell into place.
The theory of repelling sharks using a wetsuit technology holds great merit. Sure sharks have incredibly sensitive ampullae of Lorenzini, small vesicles and pores that form part of an extensive subcutaneous sensory network system, but heck lets face it, they have one prey on their mind when they see a diver… Seals
This new repellent technology focuses less on the sharks sensory systems and more on their insatiable appetite for seals. By simply informing sharks that we are not infact seals, we can put up a smoke screen and make a hasty exit before they think twice about tasting, this very seal like creature!
