I was just wondering. Sharks someone know when Orca are in the area and they disappear. I'm guessing they use their extra sensory organ that pick up electrical signals f other animals to do that. Or perhaps the smell of the orca. Could science find a way to mimic that signal to deter sharks? Or copy the scent of orca to deter sharks? Is there any research on these areas in talking about?

The research I've seen is that the signal to leave town is the chemical trail of a dead shark.
