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.

Question:
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.
