Are Sharks and Whales Halal?

Are Sharks and Whales Halal?

We can also conclude that:

If a non-fish sea creature was considered as a fish by the early Arabs, then we will consider it as a fish, e.g. a Whale.

If a non-fish sea creature was unknown or never mentioned by the early Arab community then we will either use Analogy or we will use a modern biologically definition, i.e. we will say it is not a fish biologically therefore haram.

If the sea creature is a fish, regardless of size or predatory nature, it will be halal.
