If you mean "find all the {TCP,UDP,SCTP?} ports that are open on the machine running Wireshark", no, Wireshark has no mechanism to do that. On UN*Xes, netstat -a will produce output from which you can determine what ports are open - you might have output that looks something like

tcp4       0      0  *.666                 *.*                    LISTEN     
tcp6       0      0  *.666                 *.*                    LISTEN

indicating that the machine has TCP port 666 open for both IPv4 and IPv6 or

udp6       0      0  *.666                *.*                               
udp4       0      0  *.666                *.*

indicating that the machine has UDP port 666 open for both IPv4 and IPv6.

If you mean "find all the {TCP,UDP,SCTP?} ports that are open a machine other than the machine running Wireshark", no, Wireshark has no mechanism to do that; that requires actively probing the other machine, and Wireshark is just a passive sniffer. Nmap is one tool that can be used for this purpose.

If you mean "find all the ports that Wireshark itself is holding open", no, Wireshark has no mechanism to report that.
