Hoax or not?

Shark Repellent effective or myth?
The question of whether or not a dead shark essence repels other sharks has been debated recently. In a myth busters video, both men performed a procedure where they collected several sharks together and released the essence of dead shark. This did in fact repel the other sharks; they quickly dispersed before returning after about six minutes. Overall there are various possible exceptions and mistakes, but from the evidence I gathered, the dead shark repellent is effective if only for a short period of time.
