According to a professional, the predator will count the fugitive with his prey. Therefore, it is important to feign calmness and establish eye contact with the shark.

If a giant fish swims too close, gently push it away with your hand, so it will decide that it is a worthy opponent and will retreat. Grant noted that you should set sail with your back to the shore so as not to lose sight of the predator.
