Wearable Sharkbanz 2 protects loved ones; Zeppelin saves angler’s catches.

CHARLESTON, SC (November 5, 2021) – Looking for a unique beachgoing or fishing gift that really makes a statement? Sharkbanz, makers of the world’s first wearable shark-deterrent technology and shark-deterrent terminal fishing tackle, has you covered.

The result of over a decade’s worth of research in the USA, Australia, The Bahamas, and South Africa, the groundbreaking electromagnetic technology used in both the Sharkbanz 2 wearable band and Sharkbanz Fishing Zeppelin overwhelms a shark’s electroreception, creating an unpleasant but harmless sensation that can stop the ocean’s most efficient predator in its tracks.

“Sharkbanz products do not harm sharks or repel other fish,” explains Nathan Garrison, who in 2014 cofounded Sharkbanz with his father, David, after witnessing neighbors and friends fall victim to shark attacks. “Instead, they significantly lower the odds of serious shark encounters and reduce shark depredation for anglers reeling up their catch. To that end,” advises Garrison, “All ocean-goers can wear the Sharkbanz 2 whenever they enter the marine environment, use a Sharkbanz Fishing Zeppelin to prevent hooked fish from being poached while bottom fishing, or use a combination of both products if wading, extreme surf fishing, or swimming out to your favorite casting rock.”

Recognized worldwide by surfers, swimmers, divers, beachgoers and anglers, both the Sharkbanz 2 and Sharkbanz Fishing Zeppelin are based on proven science. Ergonomically designed using premium materials for enhanced comfort, the Sharkbanz 2 can be worn on the ankle or wrist and provides a universal fit for ages five and older. It weighs just three ounces, is depth rated to 100 meters, and is available in slate/azure and white/seafoam color patterns.

Sharkbanz Fishing Zeppelin, which won Best in Category for terminal tackle at the 2021 ICAST Show – the world’s largest sport fishing trade show – is proven to reduce the number of fish lost to sharks while targeting bottom-dwelling fish species. It protects your catch, gear and good times on the water. Easy to use, the all-black Sharkbanz Fishing Zeppelin can be added as a sinker tied into the main line or deployed using a carbineer after hooking a fish.

Constructed with biodegradable, PLA materials, both the Sharkbanz 2 and Sharkbanz Fishing Zeppelin require no batteries or charging. In fact, they are always on and ready to go. Both are also TSA and airline friendly and come in a magnetic-shielded box for safe storage.

“It’s no secret that shark sightings have been on the rise in many coastal areas,” continues Garrison. Sharkbanz products allow anyone who enters the water or fishes where shark depredation is a problem to take ownership of their personal safety and ward off the ocean’s “Taxman” before it can take a bite out of your catch.”

With retail pricing starting at $69.99, the Sharkbanz 2 and Sharkbanz Fishing Zeppelin are in stock and available both online and in a growing number of fishing, boating, surfing and outdoors stores.

ABOUT Sharkbanz

Sharkbanz is the first wearable shark deterrent technology created by experienced ocean goers Nathan and David Garrison. Instead of waiting for the next attack to happen, they decided to do something about their underlying fear. After three years of testing, design, and development, the first version of Sharkbanz launched in 2015. Using patented magnetic technology with decades of research by marine biologists, Sharkbanz takes advantage of a shark’s unique and powerful electroreception to cause a highly unpleasant sensation that turns them away without harm. Their latest device, the Sharkbanz Zeppelin, uses the same groundbreaking technology to deter sharks from munching on angler’s catches being reeled to the surface. Sharkbanz pledges 3-percent of profits for ocean and shark conservation and aims to raise awareness on issues that impact the world’s oceans.
