According to Hanafiya, crab is not a fish hence impermissible.

According to the Hanafi Madhhab, only fish is permissible to consume from sea food animals. There is a difference of opinion amongst the Hanafi Jurists whether shrimps/prawns falls under fish. Those who say it is a fish state it will be permissible to consume. Those who are of the view that prawns/shrimps are not fish say it is impermissible to consume. It is better to adopt precaution and avoid eating it. Consider the following Hadith:

Leave that which is doubtful for which is not doubtful. (Al-Tirmidhi & Al-Nasa'i)

Crabs are not lawful to consume.

Fatawa Mehmoodia (18/212&267) Jamia Farooqiya

And Allah knows best

This is what I know:

Fish can be eaten as a sea food but the question arises whether shrimps/prawns/crabs fall under this fish category or not.It has been also said that fish which has no blood in their body,those can't be eaten.But shrimp/crab has blood but it's colorless(because of having less hemoglobin) so if this is taken as a fact, shrimps/crabs are impermissible to consume because their blood is not red.But if you still have doubt and according to the Hadith, it's better not to eat them at all.

There are two kinds of crabs.
First, sea crab, that living in beach area and often swim in the water.
Second, land crab that living not in the beach and often climb the tree.

According to Ulama in Indonesia, sea crabs are halal, and land crabs are haram.
