Abstract

This study investigates the relationship between households’ fish consumption frequency and their socio-demographic characteristics and attitudes. Using Chi-square test of independence, the study compares households’ fish consumption frequencies of never, once a month, twice a month, once a week and more than once a week. The empirical model was estimated using an ordered probit model to obtain the coefficients applied to the calculation of marginal effects and probabilities. The results indicate that, households’ income, children per households, working households’ head, households’ consumption of aquaculture products other than fish and the surveyed being households’ head significantly influence the frequency of fish consumption.
