Species
A species or group of species reported in FAO aquaculture production statistics. Fish species only are shown.
Production (T)
Aquaculture production tonnage in 2010 for this FAO species category (Species).
Estimated mean weight (EMW) (g)
The estimated mean weight, if any, for this FAO species category (Species).
EMW id
The id of the estimated mean weight, if any, obtained in this study for this FAO species category (Species). This is a hyperlink to Screen 2.
Generic mean weight (g)
This is used only for FAO species categories without an estimated mean weight where the EMW id will be blank. It is set to the generic estimated mean weight which is calculated from the total estimated numbers and tonnage in all countries for single-species categories with an EMW (i.e 32,406,298 million t divided by 30,537 - 101,528 million).
Estimated numbers (millions)
The estimated fish number range for the 2010 aquaculture Production (T) for this FAO species category (Species). This is obtained by dividing Production (T) by Estimated mean weight (EMW) (g) or by Generic mean weight (EMW) (g).
