Create Fishnet

Dear all!


I have to create a fishnet (raster) with a certain extend. I have a .shp file which has the needed extend which i should use. But my collegue tells me that a cell size should be 2/3 degree (latitude) x 1/2 degree (longtitude). He gives me the example from:

But for me that makes not really sense, because i have the extend from my .shp? 
Does someone know what my mistake it? I started now within ArcMap to create a fishnet for the .shp with the data:

Data Type: Shapefile Feature Class
Shapefile: C:\DATEN_FINAL\xxx.shp
Geometry Type: Polygon
Coordinates have Z values: No
Coordinates have measures: No

Projected Coordinate System: ETRS_1989_LAEA
Projection: Lambert_Azimuthal_Equal_Area
False_Easting: 4321000,00000000
False_Northing: 3210000,00000000
Central_Meridian: 10,00000000
Latitude_Of_Origin: 52,00000000
Linear Unit: Meter

Geographic Coordinate System: GCS_ETRS_1989
Datum: D_ETRS_1989
Prime Meridian: Greenwich
Angular Unit: Degree


Like a spatial resolution for (deg lat x deg lon) 1/2 x 2/3 is needed but how can i combine this with the extention of my .shp?

Thank you so much in advance for your help!
