Fish is usually eaten or merely displayed on the eve of Chinese New Year. The pronunciation of fish makes it a homophone for "surpluses".

Fish, a homophone to the word "surplus" in Chinese, is one of the "suspicious foods" at the dinner table. It is a good omen to leave the bones, head and tail intact, symbolizing a good beginning and end in the coming year.
