Why Do We Eat Fish On Fridays?

Why Do We Eat Fish On Fridays?

Why Do We Eat Fish On Good Friday and why is Fish associated with Easter?

Easter Fish - roasted Salmon on an Easter set Table

Eating fish on Good Friday (the Friday before Easter Sunday), is a tradition that many follow each year, but why?

The decision to choose fish on Good Friday goes back so much further than other Easter traditions such as egg rolling and chocolate treats.

Good Friday marks the day Jesus was crucified. According to Christianity, Jesus sacrificed his flesh on Good Friday and this is why the Church advises followers to ‘abstain from meaty flesh’ on this day.

In some churches – such as the Catholic church – the rule extends beyond Good Friday to avoiding eating meat every Friday during Lent. However eating seafood is permitted.

And so the concept of Fish Friday was born!

Wishing you all a very Happy Easter!


The NHS recommends 2 portions of seafood are included in your weekly diet – one of which should be oily. You can find out more about the many health benefits of a seafood diet here.
