    FDA's Types of Operation in Fishery

    Hi,

    I was asked to translate a facility registration document of a fishery company in Korea to be submitted to FDA.

    As a non-native speaker, there are some words that I am not able to understand the meanings.

    I'd really appreciate if some of you let me undestand the meanings of the followings.

    1. Catering point
    2. Labeler / relabeler
    3. Packer / repacker
    4. Salvage operator

    Re: FDA's Types of Operation in Fishery

    I'm not a teacher and not thoroughly familiar with the fishing industry, but if the application is using these words as they would be used for many other food source industries, the following may help:

    1. a catering point is often the end retailer - a person/place who actually sells to the consumer
    2. a labeler is usually a company who places labels on a packaged product; a relabeler may take an initially packaged and labeled product and put a brand label on it before end retailing.
    3. a packer is the person/industry who takes the raw product (fish) and processes it and packages it for a retailer; a repacker may add or change some ingredients and repackage the product.
    4. a salvage operator may refer to any salvage or cleanup process along the production line - from salvage operations on the fishing ships, to salvage of whatever of the catch is not taken to be processed, or salvage/cleanup anywhere on up the production line.

    Note that the production process goes from #3 to #2 to #1 - with #4 anywhere along the line...

    This said, the FDA itself may have very specific meanings for these words - which you may have to contact them to find out how exactly to respond on the application. Good luck.

    Yes, I may have to contact the FDA to find out very specific meanings for them.
    But, your kind explanation helped me a lot.

    I'd really appreciate you.

    Have a nice day (?) or good night!

    Mike
