Library No. ISBN 0 9593669 03    (66 pages – 40 pages in color).

 Published by Ron Taylor Film Productions Pty.Ltd. (1981).

 Valerie Taylor reports on their first tests of the steel anti-shark dive suit, with their  encouraging a shark bite on a replica diver in South Australia.

This stunt upset local divers at the time who claimed it may be training sharks to bite human forms.

Even more scary for pro abalone divers today might be the observation on how the steel suit had one test shark very agitated due to possible electrical fields generated, since the original steel suit was purchased by several divers.

As reported in the USA large circulation diving magazine. 1981.
