The Filet-O-Fish (also FishMac, MacFish or McFish) (introduced in 1962 and reached nationwide status in the United States in 1965) is a fish sandwich sold by the international fast food chain store McDonald’s.
The sandwich was created by a McDonald’s franchise owner in Cincinnati, Ohio, named Lou Groen in 1962. Groen owned a McDonald’s in a predominantly Roman Catholic neighborhood where his Catholic customers engaged in the practice of not eating meat on Fridays (a practice more common in the ’60s but that the Catholic Church continues to consider obligatory on Fridays during Lent).
The product was named by Cye Landy of Cye Landy Advertising Agency, which was the advertising firm for that particular McDonald’s franchise.
It has become popular with people who cannot eat meat-based products or with dietary restrictions concerning meat-based products. For example, in Islam, the fish used in the sandwich is considered halal even without special preparation, whilst other meats require special slaughter techniques to be halal.
