Is it too much to ask for a shark with frickin' laser beams?

A type of beam weapon which uses a tuned electronic diode to emit a pulse of monochromatic, coherent light.  Physical laws keep the power output of such lasers very low, so they are not suitable for weapons more powerful than handguns or very light rifles.  However, nearly all sensor and target-designation lasers are diode lasers.
