Model results and diagnostics for the integrated assessment model for krill in Subarea 48.1 are summarized. Alternative potential decision rules based on the distributions of krill spawning biomass during different reference periods, and potential catches associated with those rules, are described. The model and procedures outlined in this paper synthesize work reported to CCAMLR WG-EMM, WG-SAM, and WG-FSA in a number of papers since 2011. The assessment model for krill in Subarea 48.1 is offered as a tool for CCAMLR to use in managing the krill fishery in Subarea 48.1.
