1930, as amended (``the Act''), and in accordance with 19 CFR

frozen warmwater shrimp from the PRC.
    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(I) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.214(b)(2)(i), MCFC certified that it did not export frozen 
warmwater shrimp to the United States during the period of 
investigation (``POI''). In addition, pursuant to section 
751(a)(2)(B)(i)(II) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(A), MCFC 
certified that, since the initiation of the investigation, it has never 
been affiliated with any PRC exporter or producer who exported frozen 
warmwater shrimp to the United States during the POI, including those 
not individually examined during the investigation. As required by 19

shrimp for export to the United States; (2) the volume of its first 
shipment (and certification of no subsequent shipments); and (3) the

United States for consumption and had been suspended for antidumping 
duties, and that there had been no subsequent shipments.
