The fish was a traditional sign of early Christianity derived from the miraculous multiplication of the loaves and fishes (Cf. Mt 14:15-21), a type of the institution of the Most Blessed Sacrament.
The popularity of this symbol in Christian art was due principally to the fact that the Greek word for "fish" is spelled with five letters: i-ch-the-u-s. These also form the initial letters of the early Christian creedal statement: Iesous Christos, Theou Uios, Soter - "Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior."
