Limits of "aquatic creatures"

Are e.g. dolphins and seals covered by "aquatic creatures"? Would a dolphinarium, or a seal rescue centre, describe itself as a kind of aquarium? If so, shall we use aquarium=dolphinarium and aquarium=seal_rescue for these cases? --Csmale (talk) 15:38, 5 October 2014 (UTC)

Not actually sure that "aquatic creatures" is a good definition itself. I think an aquarium is mainly for creatures near to fishes and can held also seals but for a place with only seals is probably a better choice to call it zoo. So I'm adding "mainly fishes" for better explanation. I also think an aquarium can incorporate a dolphinarium and also a rescue centre but an animal rescue centre itself is not an aquarium. redrat 16:30, 05 Oct 2014 (UTC)
