Great whites are being lured to the boats and cages of tour operators by load music being played underwater – and so far they prefer the music of rock band AC/DC over anything else!
So says Matt Waller of Adventure Bay Charters anyway. He told Adelaide Now that he started experimenting with music as an alternative to using chummed fish pieces to attract the sharks. He explained that it’s actually the range of frequency, rather than the music or the lyrics that brings in the sharks, adding that AC/DC’s high decibel, low frequency sound seems to be ideal.
“We know that AC/DC music works best by trial-and-error, and we are doing more research to see what works best with different species of sharks,” Waller said. “Quite often we can see the sharks on the surface, but most of the time our guests want to get in the cage and see them up close.
