There has been a massive influx of white sharks on both coasts of the US. This has The Wall Street Journal (@wsj) and The @insider looking at ways to reduce the risk of shark interactions and attack “Surfers are sticking large eyes on the bottom of their surfboards to deter sharks from attacking them, as more and more sharks are sighted off the coast of the US. The technique is one of several, listed by the Wall Street Journal (@wsj), being used by surfers to stay safe from attacks, which are still extremely rare but can be fatal. Great whites are ambush predators, and researchers believe that they are less likely to attack if they believe they have been seen — hence the eyes.” – Developed in Western Australia by @shananworrall – who has survived multiple great white interactions, saved the life of a great white attack victim and lost friends to attack – this surprisingly simple Visual Deterrent is effective, affordable and non-invasive – As Shanan and various Shark Eyes ambassadors and researchers have witnessed first hand, sharks are extremely cautious hunters. They rely heavily on the element of surprise before making the decision to attack. Something as simple as a pair of carefully designed eye stickers on the under side of your board or on the back of your mask can take away that element of suprise and provide peace of mind while you enjoy the water! – Shark Eyes is a visual shark deterrent created by professionals for use by all water users. It is non-invasive, affordable and effective in mitigating shark attack.

这项技术是《华尔街日报》列出的几种技术之一,被冲浪者用来保护免受鲨鱼攻击,这种攻击非常罕见,但可能是致命的。

大白鲨是伏击性掠食者,研究人员认为,如果它们相信已经被眼睛看到,它们就不太可能发动攻击。

近年来,美国东西海岸出现了大量大白鲨的涌入。 在东海岸发现了至少300头大白鲨,据说有2400头大白鲨在美国西部海域徘徊。

澳大利亚冲浪运动员沙南・沃勒尔(Shanan Worrall)在卷入三次大白鲨攻击,并失去了一位朋友后,于2017年创立了Shark Eyes(鲨鱼眼)。

他的公司产品包括两个大眼贴,可贴在冲浪板,潜水装备和冲浪服装上。 据沙南说,大眼贴目的是“让鲨鱼认为它已被发现”,这可以防止它在没有被惊扰的情况下进行攻击。

沙南引用冲浪者安全研究和自然界作为他的灵感, 许多动物可以形成眼形斑纹以抵御伏击掠食者。

冲浪者使用许多其它威慑物来抵御鲨鱼。比如在他们的潜水服的腿上添加了条纹,他们希望这些条纹使他们看起来不像海豹,它们是大白鲨的主要猎物。

另一个安全装置,Ocean Guardian(海洋保卫者)的SharkShield(抵御鲨鱼)装置,发射电场是为了让鲨鱼在其电子受体范围内触发痉挛,如果它们出现在一定范围内。

Shark Eyes和SharkShield的制造商强调,没有抵抗鲨鱼袭击的自动修护防御措施。

据大西洋白鲨保护协会称,近年来美国沿海大白鲨的繁荣是由于灰海豹的数量激增。

东海岸冲浪者A.J. 萨勒诺(A.J. Salerno)告诉《华尔街日报》:“我们被鲨鱼侵扰得无法下水了。”
