Pearl of Wisdom

that Muhammad b. ?Ali b. 'Umar al-Tannukhl said to him, 'I saw Muhammad b. 'Ali [al-Jawad] talking to a bull and the bull shook his head.' Then I said to him, 'No, but [can you not] command the bull to talk to you.' He then recited [the verse]: We have been taught the speech of the birds and we have been given out of everything. He then said [to it], 'Say: there is no god but Allah, the Only One and He has no partner' and stroked its head with his palm. The bull then said, 'There is no god but Allah, the Only One and He has no partner.'

Subject: halal and haram fish
Question: Salam,
What's the ruling behind halal and haram fish?
What type of fish can we eat?
Answer: It is not permissible to eat from marine animals anything except fish that has scale.

For instance, shrimp is considered from that category [of permissible sea animals]. But other than fish, like lobster, and similarly the fish that does not have scale is forbidden.

So which fishes are allowed to be consumed? What is the rule behind it?
Follow Up Response
The rule is that if a fish has scales and is caught alive, you can eat the fish. You are probably a better judge in identifying which fish is allowed and which is not.
