In OSM, we have the tag
tourism=aquarium which is supposed to be used only for the large-scale tourist attraction (i.e. multiple, large tanks, pay entry etc.). However, it does appear it is also being used for individual aquaria, which we might colloquially call a “fish tank”.
I’d like to see the large scale aquaria rendered in Carto (as they are important tourist attractions) but one of the issues is that there’s a mix of usage of this tag.
My suggestion is that:
tourism=aquariumis used only for the large scale tourist attraction (e.g., similar to a zoo or museum)
animal=fishis used for individual fish tanks. These could be either located inside a
tourism=aquariumor as stand-alone items such as a large fish tank in the centre of a shopping mall for instance
- I’m unsure about tanks inside a pet shop (
pet=fish) or restaurant. They could be tagged as
animal=fishbut I’m not sure they’re really an “attraction” as we currently define it.
