|EMW-100||2||Japanese eel||Japanese eel||Anguilla japonica||120.00||250.00||Both||Weight or weight range||NONE||Commercial sizes of eel are 120?250 kg in Japan and over 500 g in Europe, though an intermediate-size market for 100?150 g eels is also developing. This means in practice that the European market consumes mainly females and the Japanese market consumes both males and females.||Anguilla genus.|
"Japanese eel" is taken to mean Anguilla japonica since this is the only FAO freshwater eel species category with reported production for Japan in 2010.
"120?250 kg" is assumed to mean "120?250 g".
