The sequence in the table displayed.
Species
A species or group of species reported in FAO fisheries capture statistics. Fish species only are shown.
Class
The taxonomic class to which the species contained in this FAO species category (Species) belong.
Capture (T)
Average annual capture tonnage (for the years shown) 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. This is set to the generic estimated mean weight calculated for this Class. If none exists, then this is set to the generic mean weight for all classes. Generic mean weights are calculated from estimated numbers for Single Species with an EMW in the Totals section of this screen obtained by scrolling to the end.
Estimated numbers (millions)
The estimated fish number range for the average annual Capture (T) for this FAO species category (Species). This is obtained by dividing Capture (T) by Estimated mean weight (EMW) (g) or by Generic mean weight (EMW) (g).
