The purpose of this study is to evaluate the purchase amount of shrimp in the market and the relationship between consumption amount and some of demographic characteristics. The statistical population of this study is the whole country that 10 cities including Mashhad, Tehran, Tabriz, Birjand, Kermanshah, Gorgan, Yazd, Bandar Abbas, Ilam and Shiraz were randomly selected and a total 1000 questionnaires were completed by citizens proportionate to the household population of the studied cities. In order to evaluate the number of shrimp purchases per year as well as the amount of each purchase, from the output of SPSS software and to investigate the existence of a significant relationship between consumption amount and demographic characteristics, correlation tests were used. According to the results the number of times shrimp were bought by the household varied from one to twelve times a year (average 1.71±1.11). 44.2% of households of the consumption society bought shrimp once a year and 28.6% of them bought shrimp twice a year. It was further found that the amount of shrimp purchased by household varies from 0.5 to 2 kg per purchase (average 0.92±0.26 kg). while 76.3% of households of the consumption society purchase one kilogram of shrimp in per purchase. According to the findings, consumption amount had no significant relationship with the age, job and field of study variables (p>0.05). But the relationship between this index with the education level and number of household members variables was significant (p<0.05).
