A shark can pick up a human heart beating close by so it’s helpful to have a deterrent system handy when swimming in ocean waters where they roam.
This summer, 61-year-old distance swimmer Diana Nyad’s team plans to use a system called Shark Shield during her attempt to swim the 100-odd miles from Cuba to the Florida Keys. The tech isn’t new, but it will be put to the test like never before.
