The symbolic meaning of fish is related to their watery domain. Water is related to the unknown and it contains many mysteries. Many symbolic meanings like depth of knowledge and the subconscious are associated with water. The symbolic meaning of fish then derives from the wonder of its domain. The creature in general, no matter the species, has some prime symbolic meanings like knowledge, good luck, happiness, transformation, femininity, eternity, creativity and fertility.
As observed in the story of loaves and fishes from the Bible, the fish is a symbol of faith and abundance. The fish held symbolic meaning of transformation and change for the Greco-Roman and it was sacred in their mythology. In the myth of Heros and Aphrodite they need to escape from the ferocious Typhon and so they turned themselves into fish. Water is also an emblem fertility, woman-ness and birth, and it is also a womb symbol. This association comes from the “water as the source of life” concept and many ancient flood myths. Water represents that which cannot be seen but it is certainly there. It holds endless mystery to us.
