The industry outlook for retail sales of books and magazines in British Columbia is quite positive.
Projections made by the Retail Council of Canada, the Book Industry Study Group and the Magazine
and Bookseller Journal indicate that book sales will increase by 20% to 30% over the next three
years. As in the past, mass market paperbacks written by well known authors will continue to provide
the major impetus for growth. While it does not significantly affect Brian's Book Barn, major bookstore

The rising incidence of invasive species displacing endemics
and altering water chemistry and local foodwebs increasingly
affects freshwater systems and should be considered
a water quality problem (Carr and Neary 2008). Aquatic
species have in many cases been introduced deliberately
into distant ecosystems for recreational, economic, or other
purposes. In many instances, these introductions have
decimated endemic fish and other aquatic organisms, and
they can also degrade local watersheds.
The Handbook of Canadian Consumer markets indicate that 40% of retail book purchases and 70%
of retail magazine purchases are "impulse buys". This means that the purchaser did not specifically
intend to buy a specific book or magazine when they entered the store. The purchase process is
straightforward in that a customer buys the book or magazine off the shelves and takes it away.
Customer buying criteria for books and magazines depends on a number of standard variables
including price, visual appeal, relevance of subject matter and the customer's reading ability.
The methodology used to calculate the Alberta BOD5 release rate can be found in
Appendix 2. The Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD5) standard identified in the
USEPA Cluster Rules for New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) is the benchmark
for existing mills, as Alberta mills currently apply the technology required to achieve this
standard. This was based on a review of the current performance values for Alberta
mills, other Canadian mills, top performing mills in the U.S., and allows for sufficient
flexibility for plant operations during shutdown, start-up and upset conditions.
Crawford Fund provided additional funds to the National Fisheries Authority (NFA) to cover
travel, accommodation and conference hire for participants to attend the Feed Manufacturing
Workshop in PNG. Chickens are another important source of protein in PNG and ACIAR has
also funded two projects with the common aims of encouraging farmers to replace expensive
commercial feeds with home-grown and manufactured feeds.
Animal parts are generally easier to identify than plants but only if they have not been processed.
For example, many ingredients such as rhinoceros horn and elephant ivory are obvious if whole
but if they are processed into shavings or powder then it is impossible to identify them by eye.
For most processed material forensic analysis is probably the only option if the items are not
labelled. The types of animal parts to look out for are bones, horns, tusks, gallbladders, shells
and fur-covered glands (see section on fakes below).
