We can learn deep meanings from everything that is written in the Torah. What can we learn from the criteria that make a fish kosher - ie. fins and scales? Rav Kuppitz shlit"a explains that the FINS cause the fish to swim in the right direction and guide its path and the SCALES act as a protection and filter system (ie. so that the nutrients etc. become absorbed in the fish and the waste and negative elements of its environment do not). So too every Jew needs FINS and SCALES to guide them and help them stay in the right direction and protect them from the harm and dangers that are found in every environment. This may be best achived through teachers, rebbes, good friends, Torah learning and mussar.
