I don't think we should start this sentence with an "A"

Which sentence, the Hungarian one or the English one?

How do we know 100 fish are swimming around the boat instead of a boat sailing around 100 fish?

A boat is sailing around the 100 fish: A száz hal körül egy hajó úszik. Or A száz hal körül úszik egy hajó.

Different word order. Körül is a postposition, so X körül = around X.
