The advance production technologies, higher economic growth, population explosion and shifts in dietary pattern create driving force for rapid growth in the demand for food of animal origin. Fish is a very important component of food items of animal origin. The consumption of fish has grown faster than that of any other animal product. Disparities in the fish consumption pattern exist widely across the income groups, location of the households (rural, urban, costal, etc.), and regions. This study has been conducted in Uttar Pradesh, India. As far as this paper is concerned, per capita consumption of fish is very low due to large vegetarian population. The estimated per capita consumption for fish is about 1.1 kg/ annum (2011). “Multistage budgeting framework” was used for the present study on “Fish Consumption in Uttar Pradesh”. Income elasticity of demand is estimated for fish in Uttar Pradesh and it is found to be 0.77 in 2011. Price elasticity of demand was found -1.32, which indicated that demand for fish is elastic implying that demand is the function of price In Uttar Pradesh. The probability of increased share of fish in consumption schedule of non-vegetarian population of states depends on the income, level of education, increased awareness of the contribution of fish in the nutritional profile, improved time, space and form utility of fish in Uttar Pradesh.

Keywords: Fish, consumption, Elasticity, Multistage budgeting framework, Uttar Pradesh, India.
