|EMW-228||3||European anchovy||European anchovy||Engraulis encrasicolus||8.12||9.00||Both||Average weight ("average","mean")||NONE||An estimated mean weight was calculated from data in table 1.|
“The E encrasicolus population in the Black Sea consisted of 4 different age groups (0,1,2 and 3)” (p903).
Table 1 (p904) gives mean weights and mean lengths (and proportion) for Black Sea population for age groups 0, 1, 2 and 3 for 1998-2000.
"The minimum legal length for catching this species is 9 cm."
Using data for mean lengths > 9 cm (i.e. age groups 1, 2 and 3) mean weights were calculated as follows:
8.85 - 9.00g
8.12 - 8.27g.
The estimated mean weight range was taken as 8.12 - 9.00 g.
