Abstract or Summary
  • This study analyses seafood consumption at home in Spain using three different cross sections (1980, 1990, and 1998). Price indices for seafood and other items are calculated for each household. The empirical analyses consists of the estimation of double hurdle models of seafood consumption for each survey, separately. Socio-economic variables play an important role and with a similar pattern in the three periods. The more important results concern economic fundamentals. Seafood demand is inelastic and substitute of meat and eggs and dairy products in 1980, and elastic and complement other animal food items in 1990 and 1998. Expenditure elasticity does not decrease between 1980 and 1998. The large variations in aggregate seafood consumption in Spain during the 90s have been explained previously as changes in consumption tastes or in demographics during this period. The main conclusion of this study is a very important change in tastes or in buying habits since the 80s, the seemingly erratic trend in aggregate seafood consumption in the 90s being explained by the demand elasticity.
