Pacific Coast commercial fishing licences are often referred to
by an alphabetic letter. Some examples are the "A" for Salmon, "S"
for Shrimp by Trawl and "ZN" for Rockfish.
When a commercial licence is issued, it is assigned a Prefix,
which is an alphabetic descriptor from one to 6 characters in
length. It has a species code (such as "A" for Salmon or "ZC" for
Red Sea Urchin) and may include a gear ("AS" for Salmon Seine).
All Aboriginal Communal Commercial licences begin with an "F".
