The Old Man and the Sea

why, if the fish jumps up into the air, will it not be able to dive deep to die?

this is about the fish the old man caught we he went out fishing on his 85th day

Santiago hopes the fish will jump, so that its air sacs will fill, stopping it from diving so deeply. If the fish died while deep underwater, Santiago knows he would not be strong enough to pull it up.
