The term carbon–quality steel includes both carbon steel and alloy steel which contains only small amounts of alloying elements. Specifically, the term carbon–quality includes products in which none of the elements listed below exceeds the quantity by weight respectively indicated: 1.80 percent of manganese, or 2.25 percent of silicon, or 1.00 percent of copper, or 0.50 percent of aluminum, or 1.25 percent of chromium, or 0.30 percent of cobalt, or 0.40 percent of lead, or 1.25 percent of nickel, or 0.30 percent of tungsten, or 0.10 percent of molybdenum, or 0.10 percent of niobium, or 0.15 percent vanadium, or 0.15 percent of zirconium. The description of carbon–quality is intended to identify carbon–quality products within the scope. The welded carbon–quality rectangular pipe and tube subject to this order is currently classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings 7306.61.50.00 and 7306.61.70.60. While HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and Customs purposes, our written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Antidumping Duty Order On May 23, 2008, in accordance with section 735(d) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the ITC notified the Department of its final determination pursuant to section 735(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Act that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason of less– than-fair–value imports of light–walled rectangular pipe and tube from Turkey. Therefore, in accordance with section 736(a)(1) of the Act, the Department will VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:12 May 29, 2008 Jkt 214001 direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess, upon further instruction by the Department, antidumping duties equal to the amount by which the normal value of the merchandise exceeds the export price (or the constructed export price) of the merchandise for all relevant entries of light–walled rectangular pipe and tube from Turkey. These antidumping duties will be assessed on all entries of light– walled rectangular pipe and tube from Turkey entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after January 30, 2008, the date on which the Department published its notice of preliminary determinations in the Federal Register. See Notice of Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Light–Walled Rectangular Pipe and Tube From Turkey, 73 FR 5508 (January 30, 2008). CBP officers must require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit estimated duties on this merchandise, a cash deposit equal to the estimated weighted–average antidumping duty margins as noted below. The all–others rate applies to all manufacturers and exporters of subject merchandise not specifically listed. The weighted–average dumping margins are as follows: Producer/Exporter Weighted–Average Margin (Percentage) Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Weighted–Average Margin (Percentage) All Others ...................... 27.04 Pursuant to section 736(a) of the Act, this notice constitutes the antidumping duty order with respect to light–walled rectangular pipe and tube from Turkey.

ACTION: Notice of intent to prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS); request for comments; preliminary notice of public scoping meetings. SUMMARY: NMFS and the Pacific Fishery Management Council (Pacific Council) announce their intent to prepare an EIS in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 to analyze fishing conducted under the Pacific Coast Groundfish Fishery Management Plan. DATES: Public scoping will be conducted through regular meetings of the Pacific Fishery Management Council and its advisory bodies. The Pacific Fishery Management Council is scheduled to consider actions and alternatives that are the subject of this proposed action at their June 8–13, 2008, meeting. The details of this and any other meetings related to this action will be announced in the Federal Register. Written comments will be accepted at the Pacific Council office through June 3, 2008.

Electronic Access This Federal Register document is available on the Government Printing Office’s Web site at: www.gpoaccess.gov/fr/index/html. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background and Need for Agency Action There are more than 90 species managed under the Pacific Coast Groundfish Fishery Management Plan (groundfish FMP), seven of which have been declared overfished. The groundfish stocks support an array of commercial, recreational, and Indian tribal fishing interests in state and federal waters off the coasts of Washington, Oregon, and California. In addition, groundfish are also harvested incidentally in non-groundfish fisheries, most notably, the trawl fisheries for pink shrimp, ridgeback prawns, California halibut, and sea cucumber. The proposed action is needed to establish commercial and recreational harvests levels in 2009–2010 that will ensure groundfish stocks are maintained at, or restored to, sizes and structures that will produce the highest net benefit to the nation, while balancing environmental and social values. The Proposed Action The proposed action is to implement management measures consistent with the requirements of the MagnusonStevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act) that constrain total fishing mortality during 2009–2010 within limits that maintain fish stocks at, or rebuild them to, a level capable of producing maximum sustained yield (MSY), or to a stock size less than this if such stock size results in long-term net benefit to the nation. These fishing mortality limits are harvest specifications that include acceptable biological catches (ABCs) and optimum yields (OYs) for E:\FR\FM\30MYN1.SGM 30MYN1

Background

    The Endangered Species Act of 1973 (15 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) 
requires that NMFS and USFWS develop and implement recovery plans for 
the conservation and survival of threatened and endangered species 
under their jurisdiction, unless it is determined that such plans would 
not promote the conservation of the species. This Plan discusses the 
natural history, current status, and the known and potential threats to 
the loggerhead turtle in the Northwest Atlantic. The Plan lays out a 
recovery strategy to address the potential threats based on the best 
available science and includes recovery goals and criteria. The Plan is 
not a regulatory action, but presents guidance for use by agencies and 
interested parties to assist in the recovery of loggerhead turtles. The 
Plan identifies substantive actions needed to achieve recovery by 
addressing the threats to the species. Recovery of loggerhead turtles 
in the Northwest Atlantic is a long-term effort and will require 
cooperation and coordination of Federal, state, and local government 
agencies, and the community, as well as international cooperation. NMFS 
and USFWS will consider all substantive comments and information 
presented during the public comment period in the course of finalizing 
this Plan.
