Why do sharks repel magnets?

According to the source, the task of American chemist Eric Stroud is to find an effective insect repellent for sharks after the summer. He said: “In the ocean of Florida, all creatures are attacked by sharks.” He built a small pool in the basement filled with water and raised some sharks. He observed the behavior, eating and interaction of the shark until one day he accidentally dropped a magnet near a pond. The sharks rushed away, avoiding the area near the magnet.

Sharks have a very convenient electronic sensor called the Lorenzini ampulla. These electroreceptors are small pores on the shark’s nose. Scientists believe that sharks not only use the Earth’s magnetic field to navigate, but also the prey’s heartbeat. These rotating magnets can interfere with their senses, causing them to lose their sense of direction. Stroud’s experiment did not seem to affect other species such as tuna, swordfish and crabs. The same situation can have a potential impact on sea turtles like sharks because they use the Earth’s magnetic field to return to the beach where they lay eggs and hatch them.

However, this experiment is only a single case. The so-called truth is a guess that has been confirmed through millions of experiments. Is the shark afraid of magnets? There is also a need for a stronger stone hammer. If the shark is afraid of a magnet, it is definitely good news for divers or small partners engaged in underwater research.
