I'm making a rather large 3D bass fish cake with a rhinestone hook in its mouth.

The board is 18 inches by 3 ft.

The fish is basically just sitting there. I didn't try to carve him swimming, as in his body being anything but straight, not curved as he's propelling himself.

What should the background be? Water? He doesn't look like he's swimming...he looks caught.

A cutting board? A silver platter? Drawing a blank. Gotta do this tomorrow, so any ideas are welcome!

I think a wood board would look great.

I do fish cakes all the time. A cutting board is the most popular choice by far, followed by a large ceramic serving platter.

You could put him on a bed of lettuce on the platter or cutting board, maybe some sliced tomato or something too. Here's a beautiful example of lettuce/cabbage:

I vote wooden plank... maybe add some "puddles" on the plank, like a wet fish ready to be gutted.
