“Sharks are known to be visual predators, demonstrating risk assessment during predation. I believe a product that could alter a sharks risk assessment, thereby possibly deterring an attack, is a worthy investment. I believe “Shark Eyes” has the potential to alter a sharks risk analysis, so why wouldn’t you maximise any chance of deterring a shark attack?”
