Does Shark Shield Technology attract sharks?Updated a year ago

No. Shark Shield Technology emits a three-dimensional electrical field that quickly peters out in the water, so sharks cannot sense it from far away. The sensory range of a sharks electrical perception is less than half a metre. This means they need to be within half a metre of the electrical field to sense it. As a comparison, their sense of hearing is around 1000m, and smell is around 500m.
