The mean weight of sea animals unintentionally caught during commercial non-shrimp fishing can be reasonably estimated as the mean weight of all sea animals intentionally captured by commercial fisheries but who are larger than shrimp. Considering only the species of which 150,000 metric tonnes or more were caught in 2012 and using data from the FAO Yearbook on Fishery and Aquaculture Statistics (2012) , this mean weight lies between and pounds. The number of individual animals in this bycatch, therefore, lies between 3,325 and 8,346 million. The per capita number lies between and . Adding this to the bycatch from shrimp trawling, the average American causes the unintentional capture of 46–104 sea animals who are discarded dead or dying.
