SharkStopper is the culmination of years of research, design changes and the testing of different frequencies on multiple species of sharks around the world. To prove its effectiveness, Brian enlisted the services of shark expert and Marine Biologist Dr. Shawn Larson who successfully tested SharkStopper at the Seattle Aquarium against Spiny Dogfish sharks. Brian didn’t stop there. SharkStopper was also successfully tested using additional frequency algorithms against Great White sharks in the Isla De Guadalupe, Mexicounder the supervision of renowned shark expert and handler Patrick Douglas and his team from Shark Diver,as well as renowned greatwhite shark expert Ralph Collier of the Shark Research Committee.
Additionally, the SharkStopperteam traveled to Haleiwa Hawaii and worked with local shark expert James Hall who successfully tested various acoustic frequencies against the Tiger and Galapagos sharks.

The SharkStopper device is a durable, lightweight device about the size of asmartphone and powered by a rechargeable battery that easily straps to a person’s ankle. SharkStopper activates automatically once its sensors are immersed in water.
“We’re in our final development phase before going into production,”
Just as important as protecting people from sharks, Brian developed SharkStopper to protect sharks from people. It is estimated that as many as 100 million sharks are killed every year out of fear, sport, and cuisine; certain species of the shark population have been reduced by upwards of 90% over the last 50 years.
