Relative sizes of year-classes of capelin have previously been estimated as a compromise among several measurements. In this paper, the variability of each type of measurement around the compromise is estimated, and an improved compromise that downweights high-variability types of measurement is produced. For the most recent year-class, where few measurements are as yet available, the compromise estimate is obtained by a method that balances year-class variability and measurement precision.
