The claim was posted hundreds of times over on Facebook and Twitter.
Upon performing a simple reverse image search we found that the image was used in an article by The Hindu announcing the death of a veteran photographer named Sridhar Naidu, who frequently photographed Gandhi.
In the article, the image is clearly captioned that the Gandhi was eating corn on a cob and not fish.
The image used by the users looks to be slightly blurred trying to create the illusion of a fish. This claim is fake.
