The Old Man and the Sea

At the end of the novel, what is the man hoping for?

Ok I swear this is the last question I will ask on this story. MAYBE. I think the correct answer is that he is hoping well wishing that he never killed the marlin in the first place is this true? ANY help will be AMAZING! Thanks :P

I think it would be that the sharks stay the hell away from his dead marlin. The sharks start eating the Marlin that is trapped to the sides of his little skiff.

It should be the "Marlin that is strapped to the sides of his skiff". Damn auto correct! Also we love your questions.
