2. Add the tomatoes, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper to the skillet. Bring to a boil; reduce the heat to low and simmer until the stew begins to thicken, stirring occasionally. Add the halibut and shrimp; cook, stirring gently, until fish is opaque and shrimp turn pink. Remove from the heat; top with the crabmeat and mussels. Cover and let stand 10 minutes to warm through and blend the flavors.
