Proposal

Create a specific tag for shops that sell all edible aquatic animals. For a detailed definition of seafood see Wikipedia article on seafood (using the extended "North-American definition" - there including fresh water).

NB: This tagging is not intended for shops selling:

Rationale

Shops selling seafood are rather common along the shoreline of the sea or lakes. This tag would help to complete the range of shops in this area with a common specialty shop.

Examples

  • A shop at the harbour that sells freshly-caught fish
  • A permanent stand in a public market hall that sells fish and algae

Tagging

Add a node to the center of the shop or draw an area along the building outline. Tag the node or area with shop=seafood.

Applies to

nodes or areas (when tagging the building of a shop)

Rendering

A simple icon depicting a silhouette of a fish. The fish should not be depicted in a movement (looks like a shop selling living pets) or with a fishing-hook (looks like a fishing place).

Comments

Alternative names during the discussion on the tagging mailinglist were:

  • shop=fish - To be easily confused with pet shops selling pet fish or fast_food shops selling prepared fish
  • shop=fishmonger - Being understood by communities where the English is close to british English, north american and non-native speakers had problems understanding or found it to sound outdated.

"Seafood" seems to be the term that is best understood (by the users of the mailing list) to be a shop according to the definition of this proposal.

  • I oppose this proposal I oppose this proposal. -- because I would have prefered a generic name that doesn't imply salt water fish in it's tag but allows for fresh water fish without looking up a definition page. -- Dieterdreist 16:52, 21 May 2010 (UTC)
