I have actually modeled a fish in blender and I had made surface deform modifier on the fish with the help of a youtube video.

I wanted your help in moving the fish forward or in circular motion but since I added deform modifier it is becoming difficult.

Therefore I humbly request you if you could help in getting the required objective.

Here is the blend file:


In your case, the idea is to take what can be "the main" object to drive all the other ones. If we take the force field and make it parent of the plane (flag like) then the force field will be the parent for all:

Select the flag plane then Shift select the force field and CtrlP then choose 'Object'.

Now add a curve, make the force field follow a path, adding this constraint:

enter image description here

The minus X is due to the force field orientation (rotated).

To change the speed, select the curve and change "Frames" (the greater the slower):
