Per the Wireshark wiki:
TCP Retransmission – Occurs when all the data in the packet has been seen in one or more previous packets.
TCP Fast Retransmission – Occurs when the sender retransmits a packet before the expiration of the acknowledgement timer. Senders should Fast Retransmit upon receipt of 3 duplicate ACKs.
