From fishbase.org, all common names of "capelin" refer to Mallotus villosus with the exception of one French one. “Capelin” in this reference is assumed to mean Mallotus villosus.
An estimated mean weight range was calculated from data in tables 5.2.2 and 5.2.3.
P8 Table 5.2.2 “Total international catch of capelin in the Iceland-East Greenland Jan-Mayen area by age group in numbers (billions) and the total catch by numbers and weight (thousand tonnes) in the autumn season (August-December) 1982-2003”
table 5.2.3 “Total international catch of capelin in the Iceland-East Greenland Jan-Mayen area by age group in numbers (billions) and the total catch by numbers and weight (thousand tonnes) in the winter season (January-March) 1982-2004”.
From this data a mean weight was calculated for 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2003 as 16.96 g, 18.72 g, 20.45 g, 22.25 g and 17.40 g respectively. From this an estimated mean weight range of 16.96 - 22.25 was taken.
