Answer:

Not all humans belong to the same trophic level. This is due to the dietary choices each human makes.

Many humans are omnivores, meaning they consume both plant and animal material. Thus, they may be on the third or even fourth trophic level. For example, if you consume beef (cows are herbivores), you are a part of the third trophic level. If you were to eat salmon though, salmon consume other fish, and this would mean you are a tertiary consumer on the fourth trophic level.

Vegans and vegetarians who do not consume fish or meat of any kind are primary consumers. They belong on the second trophic level.
