Shafi`i position on shellfish

Wat is the position of Imam Shafi`i on eating shellfish?


Seafood is allowed in the Shafi`i Madhhab, whether fish, sea vermins like shrimp, prawns, lobsters, all shellfish and crustacean (i.e. they must be entirely aquatic only, not like land crabs and amphibious creatures), whether they were harvested from the sea or found dead on the shore (but not found dead and floating on the water).
