Why this word?

“Piscatorial” is a far-reaching adjective that covers anything concerning fishing. It comes from the Latin “piscis,” meaning “fish,” and it shares this root with other fishy words and concepts. The constellation Pisces is said to represent two fish tied together by their tails, and the astrological sign Pisces is often depicted as these fish. In French, the word “piscine” means “swimming pool.”
