Scientists from Stellenbosch University have developed shark-deterrent technology which will physically separate sharks and people from each other. The Shark Safe Barrier is currently being tested off the coast of La Réunion Island in the Indian Ocean. The University says the advanced technology does not not injure or kill sharks and other marine animals. The concept has been successfully piloted and tested in Gansbaai. Dr. Sara Andreotti is one of the developers of the technology. “We are hoping to change the way that people that live in sharky waters interact with the ocean. In particular, SA, La Reunion Island and Australia at the moment are implementing shark fishing programmes to reduce the number of sharks in the water and keep people safer that way. By utilising the shark safe barrier we will just keep sharks separated from people without killing the marine life.”

  1. I have a feeling it’s actually similar to the shark nets that prevent sharks from coming towards the shore where people swim.

  2. I am all for nature and the survival of all species but this is some BS!!! Have we ever seen sharks come put barriers around our homes to restrict us from living our natural life?!
