Mimic Suits™ - The Original Natural Shark Deterrent Suit. www.sharkdeterrent.com
Mimic Suits™ are a natural, non-invasive shark deterrent that imitate the black and white striped pattern of poisonous sea snakes - which sharks recognise as toxic and intuitively avoid.
The concept involves no nets, cords, cables, batteries, magnets or electronic technology. There are no mechanisms, gizmos or devices that require operation, maintenance, re-charging or that risk going wrong. No chemicals or other substances that could have an adverse effect on you, other divers, diving equipment, the marine life, the coral or the ocean itself.
Mimic Suits™ are comfortable rash guards for all kinds of water sports, made with high quality anti-bacterial materials. They are salt water resistant and colour fast with 50+ UV sunlight protection.
We foster a peaceful co-existence of all creatures great and small that inhabit the oceans around us. With a concept rooted in science and the laws of nature. Inspired by wisdom from indigenous tribes in the South Pacific dating back 1,500 years.
One of the unfortunate things about Trinidad is the unrestrained fishing and hunting of shark meat for sale as traditional #shark and bake. And unfortunately, during the opening event of my conference here in Trinidad at the Hyatt Regency, shark and bake was served to participants including to conservationists. Sharks are of high importance for the ocean as an eco system and through overfishing, many shark species are endangered. Apart from ethical problems this also causes economical problems as the demand for shark meat in Trinidad cannot be covered any more. Often catfish and ray are used as substitutes and are declared incorrectly. Shark meat includes mercury at levels that is dangerous for people to consume and poses a public health risk. Often times people say it is tradition, but consuming sea turtle was also tradition and that is now banned in Trinidad. As always science informing policy combined with education is key in making conservation actions. I have taken samples of the meat to be genetically tested to see which species and where the animal was caught. #protectwhatyoulove #sharkweek #shark #saveoursharks #sharks #sharkawareness #ilovesharks #sharky #scuba #surf #beach #fishing #savesharks #sharklover #sharkconservation #learnsupportprotect #learn #support #protect #finalliance #elasmobranch #ourblueplanet #savetheoceans
