(Repeats with no changes to text)

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 29 (Reuters) - Catalyst Paper Corp CTL.TO reported a loss in the first quarter on Tuesday as a shortage of wood fiber forced it to curtail production even as paper markets improved.

The company had a net loss of C$37.4 million, or 17 Canadian cents per share, on sales of C$399.5 million.

That compares with a net loss of C$25.6 million, or 12 Canadian cents a share, on sales C$478.1 million a year earlier. (Reporting Allan Dowd; Editing by Bernadette Baum)
