Abstract: The 2005 Census of Aquaculture will encompass all operations in each State that produced and sold $1,000 or more of aquaculture or aquaculture products during 2005. The census will provide a comprehensive inventory of aquaculture farms and their production: Data on the number of farms, acreage, method of production, production and sales by aquaculture species, and sales outlets. Census data are used by farmers, their representatives, the government, and many other groups concerned with the aquaculture industry to evaluate new programs, disburse Federal funds, analyze market trends, and help determine the economic impact aquaculture has on the economy. The aquaculture census provides the only source of dependable, comparable data by State. Response to the census is mandatory. The National Agricultural Statistics Service will use the information collected only for statistical purposes and will publish the data only as tabulated totals. These data will be collected under the authority of 7 U.S.C. 2204(a). Individually identifiable data collected under this authority are governed by Section 1770 of the Food Security Act of 1985, 7 U.S.C. 2276, which requires USDA to afford strict confidentiality to non-aggregated data provided by respondents. Estimate of Burden: Public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 30 minutes per positive response, 10 minutes per screen-out, and 2 minutes per refusal. Respondents: Farms. Estimated Number of Respondents: 9,000. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 4,500 hours. Copies of this information collection and related instructions can be obtained without charge from Ginny McBride, NASS Clearance Officer, at (202) 720– 5778.

(Food Flavoring Particulates and Mixes); Leavenworth, KS An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) by the Greater Kansas City Foreign Trade Zone, Inc., grantee of FTZ 17, pursuant to § 400.32(b)(1) of the Board’s regulations (15 CFR part 400), on behalf of Cereal Ingredients, Inc. (CII), for authority to manufacture food flavoring particulates and mixes for export under FTZ procedures within FTZ 17. The application was submitted pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a–81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR part 400). It was formally filed on April 26, 2005. The proposed activity would occur at CII’s manufacturing facility located at 4720 South 13th Street within the Leavenworth Area Business Center (Site 5) in Leavenworth, Kansas. The facility (32 employees/8 acres/40,000 sq. ft., plus 40,000 sq. ft. expansion area) is used to produce flavoring particulates and swirl mixes (HTSUS 1901.90) for food products, dairy products and baked goods. The food particulates add flavor, texture and color to baked goods, breakfast cereals, ice cream, and nutritional foods. The activity conducted under FTZ procedures would involve manufacturing of food particulates and swirl mixes using domestic and foreign ingredients for export only. Ingredients purchased from abroad would include: Cane sugar, beet sugar, cocoa, cinnamon soy protein concentrate and isolate, milk protein concentrate and isolate, and textured protein concentrate. None of the foreignorigin sugar and dairy products which are subject to U.S. import quotas would be entered for domestic consumption, and all such products would be reexported from the zone. FTZ procedures would exempt CII from quota requirements and Customs VerDate jul<14>2003 13:10 May 04, 2005 Jkt 205001 duty payments on the foreign ingredients used in the proposed export FTZ production. Duties would be deferred or reduced on foreign production equipment admitted to FTZ 17 until which time it becomes operational. The application indicates that FTZ manufacturing authority for export production would help improve the facility’s international competitiveness. In accordance with the Board’s regulations, a member of the FTZ Staff has been designated examiner to investigate the application and report to the Board. Public comment on the application is invited from interested parties. Submissions (original and three copies) shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary at the following addresses: 1. Submissions via Express/Package Delivery Services: Foreign-Trade Zones Board, U.S. Department of Commerce, Franklin Court Building–4100W, 1099 14th Street, NW., Washington, DC 20005; or, 2. Submissions via the U.S. Postal Service: Foreign-Trade Zones Board, U.S. Department of Commerce, FCB– 4100W, 1401 Constitution Ave., NW., Washington, DC 20230. The closing period for their receipt is July 5, 2005. Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted during the foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15-day period (to July 19, 2005). A copy of the application will be available for public inspection at the Office of the Foreign-Trade Zones Board’s Executive Secretary at address No. 1 above. Dated: April 26, 2005. Dennis Puccinelli, Executive Secretary. [FR Doc. 05–8991 Filed 5–4–05; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3510–DS–M DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE Foreign-Trade Zones Board [Docket 18–2005] Foreign-Trade Zone 183—Austin, TX, Application for Subzone, Samsung Austin Semiconductor, LP (Semiconductor Memory Devices), Austin, TX An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) by the Foreign-Trade Zone of Central Texas, Inc., grantee of FTZ 183, requesting special-purpose subzone status with export-only manufacturing PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 23843 authority (semiconductor memory devices) for the facilities of Samsung Austin Semiconductor, LP (Samsung), located in Austin, Texas. The application was submitted pursuant to the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a–81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR part 400). It was formally filed on April 28, 2005. The facilities for which subzone status is proposed are located at three sites (192.1 acres total; 876,453 sq. ft. of enclosed space): Site #1—Samsung Austin Semiconductor facilities (186.1 acres; 764,453 sq. ft.)—located at 12100 Samsung Boulevard in Austin, Texas; Site #2—HISCO facilities (4.1 acres; 62,000 sq. ft.)—located at 8330 Cross Park Drive in Austin; and Site #3— Three Way Inc. facilities (1.9 acres; 50,000 sq. ft.)—located at 4009 Commercial Center Drive in Austin. The facilities (approximately 950 employees) may be used under FTZ procedures for manufacturing, processing, warehousing, and distributing for export purposes only semiconductors and related devices. For Samsung’s current manufacturing, foreign-sourced materials account for approximately 26 percent of finishedproduct value. The application lists the categories of material inputs which may be sourced from abroad, including wafers (HTSUS category 3818.00), chemicals (2809.20, 2826.11, 2846.10, 3814.00) and photo resist (3707.90). Zone procedures would exempt Samsung from Customs duty payments on foreign components used in export production. Samsung would also be able to avoid duty on foreign inputs which become scrap/waste, estimated at no more than five percent of imported inputs. Samsung may also realize logistical/procedural and other benefits from subzone status. All of the abovecited savings from zone procedures could help improve the plant’s international competitiveness. In accordance with the Board’s regulations, a member of the FTZ Staff has been designated examiner to investigate the application and report to the Board. Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions (original and 3 copies) shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary at one of the following addresses: 1. Submissions Via Express/Package Delivery Services: Foreign-TradeZones Board, U.S. Department of Commerce, Franklin Court Building— Suite 4100W, 1099 14th St., NW., Washington, DC 20005; or 2.
