    Well it's not parasitism because parasitism means one animal is benefiting from the others harm (the shark is not getting harmed in this case). Its not competition because they aren't fighting for the same resource. Lastly its not mutualism because it has no benefits for the shark. So that leaves you with one answer. :)
