Why is a fish the symbol for Christianity?

Most people think the fish symbol (looks like one of those support ribbons turned sideways) was chosen to represent the miracle Jesus performed when he fed the masses with a loaf of bread and two fish, but it actually comes from the ancient Greek phrase 'Iησους Xριστος Θεoυ Υιος Σωτηρ' (pronounced Iesus Christos Theo Uios Soter), meaning "Jesus Christ, the Son of God, Savior" - the acronym of which spells ichthys, the Greek word for fish.

And I said it all in one sentence. ^_^
