    People assume all creatures that swim in the seas, lakes, rivers etc are fish. Therefore people that were uneducated assumed dolphins

    , whales, octopus,

    sharks, eels etc were different types of fish, therefore could be eaten


    Not all creatures that swim and live in the waters are fish, some are mammals.

    He may have encountered them at trade caravans or markets, seen them in rivers etc.

    Shellfish are considered "fish without scales". Also fish like catfish, swordfish, and shark do not have scales.  (and are not considered kosher)

    Fishes that don't have scales include the clingfish, catfish and shark family, among others. Instead of scales, they have other layers of material over their skin. They can have bony plates that are also covered by another layer or tiny, teeth-like protrusions covering their skin.
