Do insects taste like crustaceans?

My husband and I joke that crab are giant bugs, as are shrimp, lobster, and mudbugs, and then tried to find some information about the taste of actual bugs through the following posts:

Having not eaten grubs, grasshopper, ant larvae, or the like, but having had eaten most crustaceans, eels, and other crawling sea creatures, my logical question remains: what do insects taste like? Is it anything like crustacean meat?

My intent is not to disgust; I'm simply curious.

Thanks!
