Sharkbanz, the world leader in anti-shark technology, continues to innovate by releasing the world’s first anti-shark fishing tackle, the Zeppelin. The device, which has been extensively researched, has been proven to reduce the number of fish lost to sharks while targeting bottom-dwelling fish species. The material does not harm sharks or repel other fish.
Using its patented magnetic technology researched and tested by marine biologists on predatory shark species, the Zeppelin overwhelms a shark’s electroreception, creating a highly unpleasant sensation that can stop sharks in their tracks, protecting catches, gear and time spent on the water. In trials, the Zeppelin exhibited an 84% reduction in hooked fish lost to sharks, compared to local daily averages of depredation (sharks).
The Zeppelin’s compact design minimizes drag and can be used to replace lead on a rig. The device sells for $75.
Tampa Bay Bucs football legend Warren Sapp joined the Sharkbanz team with famed fishing captain Patrick Price in Florida to successfully test the Zeppelin. Price is a major voice in the Florida fishing community and well known through his various tournament wins.
The trusted brand continues to keep water lovers safe with its handheld device, the Sharkbanz, a convenient, affordable and effective shark deterrent for sunbathers, swimmers, surfers and scuba divers. The $84 ankle-worn device has received hundreds of five-star reviews and testimonials, including from a Navy Seal who credits the Sharkbanz with preventing a shark encounter. Most notably, the founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg and old President Barack Obama, the two were spotted wearing Sharkbanz on separate vacations to Hawaii.
“Shark attacks have increased in Hawaii in recent years, and we’ve seen adoption of our technology increase for locals and visitors alike,” said Nathan Garrison, co-founder of Sharkbanz. “Seeing people follow the advice of world surfing champions like Barton Lynch and our military and use Sharkbanz to reduce risk while enjoying their favorite water sports is very rewarding. Since our launch in 2015, many users in Hawaii credit Sharkbanz with preventing attacks.
Sharkbanz is committed to giving back to the environment, pledging 3% of its profits to shark and ocean conservation groups, while helping to raise awareness of issues impacting the world’s oceans.

About: Sharkbanz is the first wearable shark deterrent technology created by experienced marine enthusiasts Nathan and David Garrison. After a close family friend was attacked, they were motivated to create a device that could prevent this traumatic experience from happening to others. After three years of testing, design and development, the first version of Sharkbanz was launched in 2015. Using patented magnetic technology with decades of research by marine biologists, Sharkbanz takes advantage of the unique and powerful electroreception of a shark to cause a very unpleasant sensation that turns them away without harm.
