The UHA membership includes most participants in the fishery, namely the 55 license holders, crew members from harvesting vessels, and all of the major wholesalers of geoduck in British Columbia.
Initially, the UHA contracted an independent company to carry out a geoduck dockside monitoring program in 1989 to provide the financially strapped Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) with data from the fishery.
This monitoring program was an essential component of the switch to an individual quota (IQ) fishery.
Since then, the UHA has voluntarily expanded their role in co-management.
Thirdly, the UHA funds four full time biologists (two consultants and two DFO positions), a number of part-time consultants and DFO contract positions, a position at Environment Canada to ensure that paralytic shellfish poison (PSP) testing is completed and pays for extensive water quality and PSP testing.

The Western Association of Salvors and Handloggers (WASH) is a new organisation designed to address some long-existing problems in the log salvage sector as seen by the log salvors.
For four decades salvors have been working under regulations that are n ot in their best interests, resulting in a climate of frustration and conflict between salvors and the Forest Industry.
The practise resulted in lost income to the salvors and a increase of smaller and lower quality logs which could not be economically salvaged, and an equally important cost to the economy, the environment, and public safety.
Percentages of the value of marketable logs currently going back to the companies under the No Mark Visible Fund should be us ed to subsidize payment to salvors for unmerchantable material at pulp prices and to subsidize the cost of utilizing or safely disposing of other materials.

Wood Pellet Fuel Manufacturers Association of British Columbia - Wood Pellet Heat
pellet, fuel, grade, wood, manufacturers, appliances, heat, cost, burning, premium grade, standard, supplies, retailers, harmful, smoke.
Pellet fuel is made mainly of sawdust, shavings and fines leftover after processing trees for lumber and other wood products.
Currently, pellet fuel can be purchased at stores that sell building supplies, pet and farm supplies, and hearth appliances.
The main difference between the two is that the standard grade contains more inorganic ash than the premium grade.
Pellet manufacturers are encouraged to label their fuel and to have it tested on a regular basis to ensure the protection of consumers.
A pellet appliance is capable of generating 10,000-500,000 BTU of heat.
The cost of pellet fuel may depend on the geographic region where it is sold, and the current season.
