Seafood Consumption by Ethnic Group


Can someone help me to find data on fish and/or seafood consumption (in Canada) by ethnic groups?


The Family food expenditure surveys 1992 and 1996 - summary files don't have much, but they do have:
- country of birth (more like continent of birth) and mother tongue (English, French, and other)
- weekly food expenditure on fish and other marine products

Unfortunately, the country of birth variable is no longer included in the 2001 pumf.

There is also the pdf file:
Influence of Immigration on The Ethnic Food Market in Canada / Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada in the November 2005 edition of Canada food stats (23F0001XCB)

I checked the Canada health survey (1978-79) and the Nutrition Canada survey (1970-1972) without success - but then, these are quite old by now and there have been substantial changes to the ethnic composition of Canada since then.

You may need to send the user the RDC-route, since the CCHS 2.2 nutrition component should include other foods than just the fruits and vegetables that are in the pumf, as well as ethnicity variables in the common and optional content file.
