SUMMARY: On August 29, 2005, the Department of Commerce (the ‘‘Department’’) published a notice of preliminary results of the full sunset review of the antidumping duty order on fresh and chilled Atlantic salmon from Norway (‘‘Salmon from Norway’’) pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). See Fresh and Chilled Atlantic Salmon From Norway: Preliminary Results of the Full Sunset Review of Antidumping Duty Order, 70 FR 51012 (August 29, 2005) (‘‘Preliminary Results’’). In those Preliminary Results we provided interested parties an opportunity to comment on our preliminary results. We received a case brief from the Norwegian Seafood Federation and the Norwegian Seafood Association (‘‘respondents’’) and a rebuttal brief from Heritage Salmon Company, Inc., and Atlantic Salmon of Maine (the ‘‘domestic interested parties ’’). A hearing, requested by respondents, was held on October 26, 2005 at the Department. As a result of this review, the Department finds that revocation of this order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping. EFFECTIVE DATE: December 30, 2005.

Background On August 29, 2005, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of the Preliminary Results of the full sunset review of the antidumping duty order on Salmon from Norway.

On October 18, 2005, respondents submitted a case brief in response to the Department’s Preliminary Results, and on October 24, 2005, the domestic interested parties submitted a rebuttal brief. A hearing, requested by respondents on August 29, 2005, was held at the Department on October 26, 2005.
