Is Shrimp Meat?

Since meat is defined as the flesh of an animal, shrimp are technically meat. Since shrimp has a hard external shell and lives in the ocean, it is regarded as a crustacean or shellfish, which is typically distinguished from the meat of land animals for religious reasons.

For instance, the Jewish religion prohibits the consumption of shellfish. While the Jewish religion does not technically prohibit meat consumption, it does differentiate between the sorts of meat permitted and the classification of shellfish.
