EMW-2283European anchovyEuropean anchovyEngraulis encrasicolus8.129.00BothAverage weight ("average","mean")NONEAn 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
1999-2000 :
8.12 - 8.27g.
The estimated mean weight range was taken as 8.12 - 9.00 g.

This screen gives details for an individual reference obtained in estimating a mean weight for this species.

The information obtained from this reference to derive an estimated mean weight is in the *** fish size quote *** and/or *** Explanatory notes *** column. Note that you may need to search the document using key words in the '*** Fish Size Quote ***' or *** Explanatory notes *** column to find the relevant fish size data. To view the reference document itself (if available online): scroll right and click on 'More info' in the 'Link to reference' column, if available.

Where the information obtained from the reference is a fish length, the calculations performed to obtain a weight may be viewed by clicking on 'More info' in the 'Length-weight calculations' column.
