The main purpose of this study was to gain a better understanding of the specific types and amounts of seafood consumed by Australians, and by socioeconomic subgroups, to determine the relative nutritional content and sustainability of seafood consumed. Secondary analysis of the Australian Health Survey (2011–2013) was undertaken. Findings include that 83% of respondents did not consume any seafood on the day of the survey, and "results indicated the proportion of seafood consumers was lowest among adults who were unemployed, had the least education and were the most socio-economically disadvantaged."
