Shark Avoidance


Shark Avoidance




      For surfers, swimmers or people who could fall overboard from a ship or boat, who may be at risk of being attacked by sharks, I propose they carry a bar of soap in their pocket.  The soap would dissolve in the water in a cloud and create an unpleasant taste to ward off sharks.  

      A single bar of soap would provide many hours of protection until it dissolved, providing more time for help to arrive.
