Plans afoot to develop stingray shield, 1 Oct 2006 [cached]
SeaChange Technology chairman Rod Hartley said there was anecdotal evidence from Australian wildlife officers and police that the devices also worked on crocodiles and stingrays.
"There is clear anecdotal evidence, but we need to turn that into serious scientific research," Mr Hartley said.
"We need to monitor the physiological effect as well as the behavioural effect of the electronic field on the crocodiles and rays."
The anecdotal evidence showed the shields caused muscle spasms in crocodiles and some stingrays, a reaction similar to that displayed by sharks.
Mr Hartley said the company was seeking to raise investment capital to fund further research.

SeaChange chairman Rod Hartley said the devices would be available this summer in two options - an antenna fixed to a surfboard, or surfboards with the antenna built in.
The electronic field is created by two battery-powered electrode modules about one metre apart, he said.
Mr Hartley said the technology had initially been developed in South Africa.
"The South Africans invented the technology and then made a mistake," he said.
"They brought out a product which was a huge, cumbersome thing which no one could wear.
"It was proved effective by abalone divers who strapped them to their cages, that was in 1995 and then nothing happened."
In 1999, Mr Hartley travelled to South Africa and negotiated a world exclusive licence for the technology.
Mr Hartley said it was coincidence the technology was ready for public scrutiny just days after a shark killed 29-year-old surfer Brad Smith in West Australian waters.
"We're very sensitive about appearing to want to capitalise on this young man's death," Mr Hartley said. - Shark repellent sales rise, 10 April 2005 [cached]
SeaChange chief executive Rod Hartley said the spike in sales was due to the publicity surrounding the three fatal shark attacks that had occurred in Australia since mid-December.
