6:19 pm
sean's mom expressed her fear about the mercury that was being found in tuna fish. so sean put his engineering talents to work designing an efficient way to test for it. >> the other technology took a week and cost $100. so unless you want a $50 can of tuna it's a nonstarter. >> reporter: they developed equipment that would give a reading in seconds. but manufacturers told them their customers don't care about that. so the two created safe catch for those who might. they say testing every fish they buy guarantees their product to have the lowest level of mercury on the market. but getting that product to the market is another kettle of fish. how hard is it to start a business [chuckling] from scratch that you don't have any experience in? >> well -- [ laughter ] >> you know, it's not hard when you don't know what you're doing. [ laughter ] >> so -- >> reporter: still, these two business guppies are turning to sharking force help as in shark tank. their product is featured this season, although they can't say whether they landed any help or
6:20 pm
not so far they have done well just operating on gut instinct. >> everybody told us we're going to fail, we are crazy, it will never work, no consumer cares or will buy your product and we said that's great. we'll launch it anyway. >> reporter: right now, they are just small fish in a big pond. but they seem confident that there's a market out there of people who actually do care about what's in the food they eat. in sausalito, john ramos, kpix 5. >> a high surf advisory is in effect for much of northern and central california's coastline today through 5 a.m. tomorrow. and this afternoon, chopper 5 caught some surfers loving some massive waves at ocean beach. the national weather service is warning beach-goers if you are not a good surfer stay out of the water. some waves could be 20 feet tall. another major concern are the sneaker waves. >> yeah. >> have to be careful. if somebody visits from the east coast and just sees an average day here in the bay

product last year due to dosing concerns. marcus' doctor did write epinephrine auto injector so instead of the epipen she got this. now it's her turn to raise awareness. >> i'll follow up with the school to use this version. >> reporter: it is important to practice how to administer the alternative like the epipen there is a free trainer but you have to order it online. the primary difference is this generic has two caps instead of one. you must hold the injection for 10 seconds and the needle doesn't retract when you finish. if your pharmacy doesn't carry the generic, you can ask them to order it. the key is the way they write the prescription. epinephrine auto injector without the word epipen. and you can still get an epipen with that prescription. you just have more options. >> right. you need to know to ask. >> exactly. >> good information. thank you. wild pigs taking over a city park. >> a california city's confusing message to help remove the animals causing some to bring guns to the park. ,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
