Fish, and not one type, just fish, was sacred to the Greco-Roman mythology, check this in the myth of Aphrodite and Heros- when they turned themselves into fish- in order to escape from the ferocious Typhon.
In Christianity, the fish, again no specific specie- is a symbol of abundance and faith.
Pagan traditions recognized the fish, again any fish- as a feminine symbol of fertility and an attribute of the Goddess. This is the one, I wonder, if where we get mermaids from?
An ancient Celtic fish (salmon, specifically) this is the first mention I find of one specie,) dealt with knowledge, wisdom, inspiration and prophecy. Umm, fish as brain food perhaps, I love the Irish.
In ancient Eastern Indian mythology, the fish (any fish) is a symbol of transformation and creation. This is one long fish tale and it's quite a read…..you gotta get in king Manu's boat.
