Abstract

Per capita seafood consumption, which has been increasing was 15.5 lbs. in 1987 compared to 10.3 lbs. in 1980. This increase occurred during a period of increasing aquaculture production, especially catfish. Per capita catfish consumption increased from .24 lb. in 1983 to .58 lb. in 1988. A nationwide household survey indicates catfish is the fifth most popular seafood item in the United States. A logit analysis was used to identify socioeconomic factors significantly influencing catfish consumption both at home and away from home. Race, religious preference, and household size are significant factors along with perceived regional availability. Copyright © 1992 Wiley Periodicals, Inc., A Wiley Company
