The mean weight estimates for each species were obtained from a range of data sources (for details click on the link in the EMW id column), ranging from the lowest to the highest figure quoted at the highest level of reliability available. For multi-species categories, the range is the estimated mean weight of the smallest to the largest species believed to be farmed significantly.
