A new device has been made which has the ability to stop shark attacks. It is a pod device that an individual straps to their body while swimming. This device emits a shark-specific signal that deters the shark from coming close to the individual.
Ideally researchers of this technology want to place these devices along the ocean floor, in order to create a barrier between surfers/swimmers, and these dangerous sharks.
However, even with the amount of Great White sharks on the rise, there is simply not enough funding to undertake such a project.
For now shark spotters will continue to do their jobs.
