They already know what triggers them off. The hunt for FOOD.

Sharks don't have good eyesight but they are excellent at detecting movement. When they detect something thrashing around and they happen to be hungry they'll clamp onto whatever's moving in case it's something edible. They are purely creatures of opportunity. If what they bite bleeds they know they've hit the jackpot and will then go into a feeding frenzy.

Basically sharks will try to eat anything that doesn't eat them first. They're not evil, they're not vicious. They're just hungry.

lazhy if lifeguards see sharks at the edge of the beach they don't just warn people, they make people get out of the water.

Do you really think they see the shark and go, "Hey man look, there's a shark out there. Cool!"
