Better a small fish than an empty dish

Fish is an essential source of protein, vitamins and minerals, and should be eaten at least twice a week. Fish is best cooked immediately after being caught. When fish is frozen it loses some of its nutritional properties. Tinned fish sometimes contains a variety of dietary supplements.

The fish is one of the earliest Christian symbols. The Greek word for fish (ichthys) is an acronym for the phrase "Jesus Christ, Son of God, Saviour".
