The theory of repelling sharks using a wetsuit technology holds great merit. Sure sharks have incredibly sensitiveĀ 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!
