The Shark Shield SCUBA7 is a compact, versatile and light weight personal shark deterrent system which allows you to explore and enjoy the oceans without fear. It's specifically designed for Scuba diving. The Shark Shield SCUBA7 has two electrodes, one is fitted to the ankle region with the supplied neoprene and Velcro pouch and the other is fitted to the tank with the supplied Velcro fittings.

Once the antennas are submerged in salt water the electrodes emit the protective field allowing you to dive in freedom. Note it is advised that a full wetsuit is worn.

The SCUBA7 antenna has been designed to cause minimum of water resistance and drag on the user. Less than that off the FREEDOM7 as the trailing antenna is smaller.

Shark Shield's unique wave form elliptical field only affects free swimming sharks and to a minor degree rays and skates. The field generated by the Shark Shield is detected by the shark through its sensory receptors known as Ampullae of Lorenzini, situated on the snout of all predatory sharks. The unique and unfamiliar pulsing sensation emitted by the Shark Shield does not replicate that given off by a fish and does not attract sharks to an area. Shark Shield allows you to hunt, photograph or just swim with all other marine animals roaming freely in their ocean settings.
