What is the proper way (etiquette) to eat seafood?

Can anyone tell me how one is supposed to open shellfish like king prawns, mussels, etc.?

Do you know of a website, preferably with diagrams who can illustrate this?

Thanks.

    usually all shellfish is served with utensils for cracking the shell, and little forks for removing the meat. Mussels and other bivalves are just opened using the fingers. When in doubt, such as at a formal occasion, it is always best to observe what others are doing
