In Christianity, the fish is a symbol of abundance and faith as observed in the Biblical story of fish and loaves. There are also several Biblical references as Christ and his disciples being 'fishers of men'. Here, man is represented as the transformational fish and the ocean is a symbol of the abyss of sin in which man finds himself.
Pagan traditions recognised the fish as feminine symbol of fertility and an attribute of the Goddess. Water is a natural emblem of the flow of the Divine Mother principal, and as such, all creatures of the water are aspects of the fertility and power of the female deity.
As an ancient Celtic symbol, the symbolic meaning of fish (specifically Salmon) dealt with knowledge, wisdom, inspiration and prophecy. Ancient Celts believe the salmon derived its wisdom from consuming the sacred hazelnuts from the well of knowledge (Segais). They also believe that to eat the salmon would mean gaining the wisdom of the well.
