“The average size and weight of the sardines landed in the Astoria area are 22.2. cm and 183g which are significantly larger individuals than many sardine harvests (McCrae 2003). While this has caused some concern in the bait-fish industry which prefer smaller sardines 130-150 g in size, it does provide opportunities for sardine processing for human consumption.”
