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.
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).
Note that the estimate of numbers of fish caught for any given country (unlike the global estimate) does not include estimated numbers for fish species without an estimated mean weight.
Country
The country whose fishing fleets caught the fish.
