Santiago has different feelings for fish. His relationship with the sea is borne out of countless solitary journeys into her waters. The old man likes the sea turtles but does not like the small poisonous ones. Santiago has a special relationship with the giant Marlin. He wants to catch it but he also reveres it. At times Santiago even calls for the Marlin to take his life. The old fisherman feels a kinship which transcends that of other fishermen (except perhaps the boy).
