Are societal wastes all bad? Some of them, including heat from power plants and certain organic wastes, have been demonstrated to be potentially valuable for growing aquatic food organisms. The use of such wastes promises the double benefit of a cleaner environment and an increased food supply. Research and development effort can be expected to solve, for at least some production methods, the technical, economic, and public health problems that currently exist.

The substantial failure rate of new packaged goods in test markets has stimulated firms to seek improved methods of pre-test-market evaluation. A set of measurement procedures and models designed t...

A model and measurement methodology is proposed to aid managers in designing new frequently purchased consumer products. The model is structured as a trial and repeat process that produces an estimate of long-run share for a new brand. Physical and psychological product attributes are linked to the trial and repeat probabilities through multidimensional scaling procedures. Perceptual maps of existing brands with ideal brand positionings are derived. The product design determines the new brand's ...

Abstract A combined tertiary sewage treatment—marine aquaculture system has been developed, tested and evaluated using several different experimental sizes and configurations located both at Woods Hole, Mass. and Fort Pierce, Fla. Domestic wastewater effluent from secondary sewage treatment, mixed with sea water, is used as a source of nutrients for growing unicellular marine algae and the algae, in turn, are fed to oysters, clams, and other bivalve molluscs. Solid wastes from the shellfish are ...

The potentialities and problems of using thermal effluents and/or secondary sewage as inputs to a marine aquaculture system is the main focus of this study. The demand on coastal zones for both waste disposal and food production is complimented by the rising feed cost for raising fish and farm animals. In examining the advantages of a waste-food recycle system current and foreseeable problems, especially including those dealing with biological, social, political and legal matters become more rec...

Public opinion in California regarding water supply augmentation, preference for new sources of water, and the basis for this preference was assessed along with knowledge of new sources. Data were obtained by a survey of 100 respondents from each of 10 selected communities. The results indicated that most respondents were not convinced that water supply augmentation was needed, that knowledge of new sources was incomplete, and that imported surface water and desalinized water were the first pref...

There are two compelling reasons for reclaiming water from community waste water: (a) to protect the environ ment from contamination, pollution, and degradation; and (b) to provide new sources of water for needed beneficial uses. Wastewater reclamation will increase rap idly in the future as the need for new wa ter and the need to protect the environment become increasingly urgent.1 As water reclamation accelerates, decisions regard ing beneficial use assignment will become more difficult. Uses ...

Eutrophic systems, on the other hand, rarely achieve the status of a stable, climax community. The continuous supply of nutrients to these environments sustain high levels of photosynthetic production. If processes of advection or decomposition of the resulting living and dead organic matter cannot keep pace with its rate of production, this material may accumulate to the point where it exceeds the carrying capacity of the water. These extreme conditions lead to the development of anoxic and eve...
