- Lacking emotions, or diminished mental and emotional capacity
- Cold or impersonal
- Adept in a certain environment or a particular pursuit, as in a fish's expert ability to "breathe" and swim in water
Dreaming of this animal can represent:
- Having too much of one of these qualities, or that you could benefit by being less this way
- Not having enough of one of these qualities, or that you could benefit by being more like this
- Someone or something in your real life with whom you associate one of these qualities (an event, situation, threat, etc.)
For more clues, pay attention to what the animal was doing or any particular characteristic that stood out.
A large or threatening fish can represent a perceived threat or overwhelm in real life.
