No clear definition

For sure, this tag is very useful. But description lacks certain very important aspects. It does not tell, if this tag implies that everything within its boundary is filled with water, or it's just a boundary that indicates usage of territory. I think, it should only indicate the primary usage, since it could be within a boundary of larger water body of different nature (reservoir, natural lake, sea).--BushmanK (talk) 18:17, 8 April 2016 (UTC)

I think the 'definition' here refers to if the tag is a physical feature, a property of a physical feature, etc. Not the meaning of aquaculture. Warin61 (talk) 08:59, 25 February 2017 (UTC)

Definition of aquaculture

A definition was added on 24 February 2017 (UTC) as "Area on land or sea, where fish, shellfish, or shells are breed." is not great ... crocodiles are not fish, seaweed is not an animal, shells do not breed, a river is not a sea. Perhaps "An area on land or water that is used to captivity farm water produce."? Warin61 (talk) 20:22, 24 February 2017 (UTC)

Another definition was added on 25 February 2017 as "An area on land or water that is used to farm aquatic organisms." This does not separate out 'wild fishing' or wild harvest. I think 'captive' is used in all aquaculture? Dictionary time. Hmmm "Cultivation of food resources of the sea or inland water" So if 'farm' excludes the wild harvest then ok? My thinking is 'farm' implies 'cultivation'. Warin61 (talk) 09:02, 25 February 2017 (UTC)
