Discovery Channel - March, 2018
Start the video below at the 08:50 mark, full-screen and watch as Co-Founder Nathan Garrison and the rest of the team successfully test our Sharkbanz Technology and our Shark Leash on as many as six (6) Bull Sharks (at one time!) in the Bahamas. Filmed for Discovery Channel's 'Daily Planet' series. Aired March 28, 2018.
Sharkbanz Repels Great Hammerhead
While conducting some Bull Shark testing in the Bahamas this year, we unexpectedly encountered a Great Hammerhead only a few feet from shore - a rare occurrence! He was attracted to the bait in our dummy's (Bernie) leg meant for the Bulls and came in for an evening snack. Luckily for Bernie, he was wearing his Sharkbanz and the shark reacted noticeably with a distinct avoidance reaction (twice) before swimming off to find a meal elsewhere.
Sharkbanz repels Bull Sharks
The Bull Shark is widely considered the most dangerous shark to humans because of its aggressive nature and nearshore habitat. The magnetic technology inside Sharkbanz was first successfully tested on Bull Sharks several years ago, and this demonstration shows how effective they can be in a baited scenario.
Sharkbanz: The Bernie Test
Most shark attacks occur in murky, shallow waters off the coast where there are a high number of swimmers and sharks sharing the same space. These unprovoked “hit and run” attacks are the most common type of shark bite, and Sharkbanz are an excellent defense against them. Using our test dummy, Bernie, we wanted to put our technology to the test in a simulated surf scenario. Even with bait in Bernie's leg, there were never any bites while using Sharkbanz. Without Sharkbanz, there were multiple bites.
Sharkbanz: Shark Defense Personal Test
Our first filmed testing and open-water demonstration. Along with our scientific partners at Shark Defense, our team put on our Sharkbanz and jumped in with the sharks to show the technology truly "in-action". Although we wanted to show people just how much we believed in the effectiveness of the product, we do not recommend or encourage anyone to attempt demonstrations like this with Sharkbanz and wild sharks.
Modom Shark Leash In-Action
A compilation of our testing sessions with the Modom Shark Leash (featuring Sharkbanz Technology) against Bull Sharks in addition to various other shark species such as Blacktip and Caribbean Reef Sharks. Over three days testing the Modom Shark Leash on wild sharks, all with the use of bait, we never recorded a bite reaction. When the Shark Leash was removed, bites occurred within minutes.
