Freedive International field tests AquaShield Shark Deterrent

Freedive International recently posted a video in which they did field testing of the AquaShield Shark Deterrent System in the waters off of South Africa. The sharks species seen in the video include the sevengill shark (Notorynchus cepedianus) and the brown shyshark (Haploblepharus fuscus).

The owners of this video do point out that they are not attempting to refute claims made by the manufacturer, rather the point of the video is to show that “only that the device does not work with these species of shark.” While one could probably bring up a valid argument that the shysharks were being baited, the sevengill sharks in the video did not appear to be baited and certainly seemed indifferent to the presence of the AquaShield device.

If nothing else, the divers in the video seemed to be having fun while testing out the device.
