The Old Man sees the fish as a noble creature far superior to most people that the Old Man has known.  While the Old Man understands the significance of the fish in terms of what he could do for the people of Santiago's village, the Old Man knows that the nobility of this beautiful creature of the sea far outweighs the fish's ability to feed people teporarily.
