How to use "Shellfish" in context?

Shellfish refers to any aquatic invertebrate that has a hard outer casement or shell. This group of animals can be divided into two categories: bivalves and mollusks. Bivalves, which include oysters, clams, and mussels, have two shells that are attached by a hinge. Mollusks, which include squid, octopuses, and snails, lack shells, and instead have a muscled, soft outer casing.

Despite the different body structures, shellfish share many common dietary needs and preferences.
