I am working on defining the term “Aquatic animal as human food” in an ontology my lab is developing. This term has a text definition of “Animal which produces food for human consumption and lives in water.” For the formal definitions (cross products) I would like to use a term in ENVO which would suffice as the value for “water”.” So the term “Aquatic animal as human food” would have a definition of has_role “produces food for human consumption” and something like lives_in/managed_in “water.” Some possible candidates in ENVO for “water” in this definition that I’ve found include:
· aquatic habitat ENVO:00000144
· aquatic biome ENVO:00000428
· aquatic feature ENVO:00000063
· water ENVO:00002006
Please advise which would be the proper term to use in this situation.
