At Texas A&M, calling freshmen "fish" seems to derive from the vocabulary of the Corps of Cadets:
Because of A&M's long history as a military school--and the originally military traditions that have been enthusiastically adopted by the entire student body--almost everyone knows at least some "Corps-speak."

Texas A&M Univ has "fish camp" for students before their freshman year.

Any ideas on where the prison term "fish" for the new man on the cell-block originated?
Thank you very much,
