[Tagging] landuse=aquaculture with wateruse=aquaculture

I have no problem with tagging mariculture operations
with landuse=aquaculture although it is a bit odd sounding. I wonder if the
key salt=yes will be sufficient (or even acceptable) to indicate when such
aquaculture is occurring in the ocean?

As for whether this is refining/redefining or redefining the landuse tag, I
would rather say we're "expanding its definition" to include watery
environments LOL
