The prevalence of stunting in Indonesia is quite high. One of the causes is inadequate nutrition during the growth period. Consuming fish can provide nutritional intake, protein and micronutrients to support the growth and development of children. The aims of this study was to determine the relationship between the number of fish consumption, and fish processing techniques with the prevalence of stunting. This research is a type of case control study. The research subjects were 117 families, with details of 78 non-stunted families and 39 stunting families.
