IFQ, SOS, ED, OC, CFH, ***?
As some know, I'm new to the fishing from a boat world, so a lot of this is Greek to me, so I'm reading a ton or trying to anyways. I get stopped with some of the abbreviations used.
What do all the abbreviations people are using in this conservation forum mean? Some examples are those in the title: SOS, IFQ, ED, OC, NMFS, CFH. What/who do they affect and how?
I am not looking for politics or arguments, looking for facts about what the plans are. Feel free to post your feelings ONCE each because its evident there are two sides, but I want to learn, not read a ******* match...
Two abbreviations that I know are.....beyond that, I'm lookin for a little help.
CFH- Collection, Fishing and Holding
SOS- Sector Separation
NMFS-Nat'l Marine Fisheries Service
