More info that was promised-
What is likely happening is that the sharks can smell the blood but it's just not in a quantity that is interesting to them especially since they don't love human blood that much (btw, I spoke with a marine biologist and mammal blood is all the same from a chemical marker stand point so cow blood is a suitable substitute for human blood). If I did the experiment again, I would want to test human blood vs. fish blood.

This is the most definitive study done to date in a control lab environment on what is least and most interesting to them: The Biology of Sharks and Rays Peter A. Klimley and Steven Oerding; ISBN-13: 9780226442495. Particularly pages 134-140. Figure 6.7; Table 6.2

Summary: I've always wanted to test if sharks can really smell a single drop of blood in the water from 1 mile away. So I went to the Bahamas in shark infested waters and set up an experiment to get to the bottom of things.

I couldn’t help but notice that even after the blood etc was added to the water. For a while, the sharks stayed at the back of the boat near the steps, as if they are used to bring fed - learnt behaviour? Maybe from tourists/human entertainment/discarded fishing chum

Scientific experiment.
But may be you needed a much faster rate of human blood spillage for the sharks to get their attention and turn them on. 👍

I would love to see the test done on Bull sharks, great whites and tiger sharks all in the same area to see if the sharks compete against each other, also I believe sharks are like a dog when it comes to chasing cats if fast surface splashing behaviour is done in the water the sharks are more curious to see what it is. So maybe you could rig up a manic-an bleeding at different speeds using human blood, pigs blood, fish blood and one with no blood at all to see what the sharks like the most but do each test separatly on different days but the same water way
