They don't always get provoked, they would usually try to lead the youngs away but some agressive ones react to larger lures or lures that do a lot of water thrashing or sound. It also doesn't mean there's an adult Toman when you see a school of its babies unless you actually spotted it. If it's possible, try not to disturb the guarding parent at all.
