How does it work?


The WasteShark is designed after one of nature’s most efficient harvesters of marine biomass, the Whale Shark.  


Inspired by nature and blending technology, form and function, the WasteShark is designed to swim through water and eat its prey with minimum effort and maximum efficiency.


The WasteShark comes in two models:

  • Class M: Manual operation: remote controlled.  

  • Class A: Autonomy Level 1: mapped by waypoints.


+ option for both models:


Class M+ and A+: Data enablement for environmental sensors and cloud reporting.
