Are Scampi, Crab and Lobster halal?

Lobster and Crab are not from the fish species from a family of large marine crustaceans. Therefore, they will be considered haram under the Hanafi School.

Scampi, to be precise, does not mean shrimp but is the Italian name for small members of the lobster family. Scampi will be included part of this definition.
