Survey into the seafood consumption preferences and patterns in the portuguese population. Gender and regional variability.
Appetite. 2013 Jan 11;

With the purpose of achieving a deeper knowledge of one of the most important seafood markets in Europe, a survey into the seafood consumption preferences and patterns in the Portuguese population was carried out. A thorough, comprehensive, and simple questionnaire was developed. Consumers were asked to state their preferences towards fish products, their consumption frequencies, the average meal portion, and the usual culinary treatments. Respondents provided personal data: gender, age, geographical location, education level, weight, height, and health condition. This paper presents the first part of the study’s results, focusing mainly on the gender and regional variables. Portuguese consumers prefer wild to cultured fish as well as fat to lean fish. Chilled fish is preferred over frozen, salted/dried, canned, and smoked fish, being the latter the least preferred. Soaked cod, hake, and canned tuna are the most eaten seafood products. Men prefer to a greater extent wild and smoked fish. Men consume more cephalopods and sardine and women eat more frequently hake, pink cusk-eel, and redfish. Coastal populations prefer wild fish. Algarve (southern Portugal) consumers exhibit a stronger tendency to wild and whole fish and consume more sardine and sole. Madeira archipelago consumers are particularly fond of black scabbard fish.
Resolved Question: I screwed up first semester of Freshman year, can I still go to college?
This semester was rough and I don’t want it to mess up my chances of getting into a college in California. I really want to go to UCLA, USC, UC Berkeley or Pepperdine and I heard they only look at your overall GPA, and some don’t look at Freshman year. I also heard they look at all 4 years but they look for improvement. I’m really scared because I don’t want to get into a “bad” college.
So about Middle School (seems like a blur) but I was on the A/B honor roll every single quarter. I was used to having a lunch, study hall, and the only elective i had was Choir.
Now in high school I’m taking 3 electives, Choir, French, and Culinary Arts/Computers. I have no lunch, no study hall, and I’m taking my first honors class this year. Along with that, I also do extracurricular activities after school such as newspaper, community service, french club, and this fccla thing that will help me with fashion. Apparently my GPA is a 4.1, but I don’t know how I got that. So, here are my grades for this semester:
Global Issues Honors B+
While a lot of people have a lunch and study hall I don’t, and it’s a huge jump from last year, also we had two language arts classes in middle school and now this year I’m just going straight through the day all 8 periods.
My last choice for college would be a California State University but I want to aim higher than a “75%” acceptance rate
Also I plan on filling in all 8 periods throughout high school, meaning I would graduate with over the minimum of credits (minimum is 23 and you could reach as high as 32 credits)
