Table 12.3 (p600) shows estimated catch in numbers at age for the Aleutian Islands for years 1977-1998.

Table 12.6 (p603) gives mean weight at age for ages 2-15 both for surveys and for the commercial fishery.

From this data a mean weight was calculated for the commercial fishery for each of the years 1994-8 (the latest 5 years). The range obtained was from 697.28 to 748.16g and taken as the estimated mean weight.
