Land represents the people of God (Jews) while the gentile nations are represented by the sea. The people of those nations? Fish--"I will make you fishers of men." In the New Covenant, fish shall be saved and included into the body of Christ.

An interesting note: in all of the Old Testament, I have found no narrative that mentions people eating fish. If I am wrong, please correct me. The implication of this and the John 21 passage (Christ cooking and eating fish on the shore, the disciples catching 153 great fish, etcetra) had the relative effect upon me of a sweet adorable four year old girl smiling as she hits me in the face with a Louisville Slugger.
