    We consider how to advance the development of the concept of an experimental approach to management for the Antarctic krill fishery. We therefore propose a geographic identity matrix and a suitability decision matrix which could help underpin progress towards future implementation. We welcome comments and suggestions to help improve both matrices and their implementation. We also highlight gaps in understanding where we believe new management information is vital and ask the Scientific Committee to consider if these, or other areas of management, are most pressing.
