Fishes are Parve (not dairy and not meat)- neutral

The Torah does not permit Jews to eat all types of fish – only those that have fins and scales: “this you may eat from everything that is in the water – everything that has fins and scales... but anything that does not have fins and scales... shall be abhorrent to you” (Leviticus 11:9-12). Shellfish, dolphins, sharks, squid and so on are therefore prohibited. Click here to the complete article...

Fish & Seafood:
A water creature is kosher only if it has fins and scales. Examples: salmon, tuna, pike, flounder, carp and herring are kosher, while catfish, sturgeon, swordfish, lobster, shellfish, crabs and all water mammals are not.
All reptiles, amphibians, worms and insects -- with the exception of four types of locust -- are not kosher animals.
