D. Madhavi, D. L. Kusuma

The survey was conducted at two different regions (Coastal region-Nellore; and non- coastal region Tirupati) of urban households in Andhra Pradesh through personal interviews (1200 Households) to assess region specific consumption rates by targeting the residence of respondent. The relevant questions were asked to know knowledge of the respondents of a particular population. The purpose of the study respondents attitudes towards fish consumption that can currently determined by parameters such as income of the family; price; variety of fish availability; and knowledge about beneficial effects of fish in human health and disease conditions. Results reveal that the low cost; frequency and availability of fish consumption higher among coastal region representing Nellore urban population. Although a number of differences between coastal and non coastal region urban households with respect to their frequency of fish intake are covered; the findings suggest that fish consumption tradition and habits account for large differences between the regions; particularly in fatty fish consumption. This study exemplifies the need for nutrition education and more effective communication about fish; particularly to the people facing chronic diseases.
