Ocean Guardian Launch eSPEAR

The World’s First Handheld Electrical Shark Deterrent

Ocean Guardian have launched eSPEAR, the world’s first handheld electrical shark deterrent designed for diving, snorkelling and spearfishing. eSPEAR is powered by Shark Shield Technology, the world’s only scientifically proven and independently tested electrical shark deterrent technology.

Ocean Guardian worked with D+I to develop a small, lightweight and easy to carry device for the everyday ocean user. Backed by 20 years of research, the handheld device offers powerful and proven shark deterrent protection. Featuring a trigger activated extendable baton, the user is able to create a powerful electrical field of up to 1m in diameter and 2.5m length to deter an unwanted shark encounter.

Ocean Guardian CEO, Lindsay Lyon says, “Our customers have been asking for a smaller device, so we're excited to bring this product to market enabling people to help mitigate their fear of sharks and enjoy the ocean, and help save our marine life. It’s very simple to use — simply attach it to your dive belt, swimsuit or trunks and you can swim in the ocean with the comfort of knowing you have the power of Shark Shield Technology at your fingertips.”

Amanda Elizabeth, Shark Scientist says, “It’s fantastic that Ocean Guardian are really accelerating their product development to cover more ocean users and the reason this excites me is the fact that their devices do not harm the sharks or other marine life. We need to all work together to protect our oceans but also have the confidence to share them with marine life…”
