This survey on daily food intake in the south-western part (Southern Tsugaru area) of Aomori Prefecture was a continuation of a previous survey conducted in the south-eastern part (Sanpachi-Kamikita area). The 50 families surveyed were composed of three different groups of primary occupations: fishery workers, farmers and "other occupations." The average total daily food consumption of the whole survey group was about 2, 160g/d/p, and showed no significant seasonal variation. The consumption rates of marine and agricultural products were about 230 and 1, 180g/d/p respectively, being relatively constant year-round. Those of livestock products and other products were about 340 and 406g/d/p, with slight seasonal variations. The proportions of agricultural, livestock and marine products in the total food consumption among all families were on average about 55, 16 and 11%, respectively.<br>The highest daily food consumption recorded of 2, 255g/d/p was observed in "other workers' families, " followed by 2, 149 and 2, 046g/d/p in farming and fishery workers' families, respectively. Families of fishery workers showed the highest consumption of marine products, but the lowest consumption of livestock products. The consumption of agricultural products and other foods was remarkably high in "other workers' families."<br>Those representative foods with high consumption rates in the area were a) squid, salmon and cod in marine products, b) rice, apples, radishes, cucumbers, tomatoes and tofu (soybean curd) in agricultural products and c) milk, eggs and pork in livestock products.<br>Some slight but statistically-significant differences were recognized in the consumption patterns of the area compared to its previous survey.
