In brief: Generally not

Allergies to both fish and shellfish are most often very specific; you can be allergic to one species and not to any others.
If the allergy is mild (e.g., a little itching in the mouth when you eat it), you can safely (but cautiously) try other fish. But if you had a serious or life-threatening reaction to one kind of fish or shellfish, it is best to get tested by an allergist before trying others.
