God has brought me laughter. Genesis 21.6

I have no idea if this is true or not, I found it on the web.....
The fish is thought to have been chosen by the early Christians for several reasons:
The fish would not be an obvious Christian symbol to persecutors
Jesus' ministry is associated with fish: he chose several fishermen to be his disciples and declared he would make them "fishers of men."
It is said that during the persecution of the early church, a Christian meeting someone new would draw a single arc in the sand. If the other person was a Christian, he or she would complete the drawing of a fish with a second arc. If the second person was not a Christian, the randomness of the half-symbol would not reveal the first person as a Christian.
