A food consumption survey was done in the south-eastern part (Sanpachi-Kamikita area) of Aomori prefecture. The annual averages of the total daily intake were 1, 902, 2, 224 and 1, 912g/p/d for fishery's, farmer's and other worker's families, respectively. These figures are distinctly larger than the reference value of the national daily consumption rate in Japan. A small seasonal variation was observed in the total consumption, being slightly higher in autumn and lower in spring. The highest food consumption was observed in the farmers among the three groups. The shares of agricultural, livestock and marine products were around 60, 20 and 10%, respectively, for the averaged total consumption of the whole families. The contribution of marine products to the total consumption was relatively high compared with that of the national average. The coastal fishery's group showed the highest consumption of marine products.<br>The representative foods in order of high consumption rates were as follows: salmon, squid and wakame (seaweeds) in marine products; rice, radish, tofu (soybean cake), cucumber and apple in agricultural products; and milk, egg and pork in livestock products.
