ACTION: Notification of determination of overfished and overfishing conditions. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This action serves as a notice that NMFS, on behalf of the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary), has determined that northeast smooth skate, South Atlantic red snapper, and Gulf of Mexico gray triggerfish are overfished and that northeast thorny skate is subject to overfishing. NMFS notified the respective regional fishery management councils (Councils) responsible for these fisheries of its determination. The Councils are required to take action within 1 year following notification by NMFS that overfishing is occurring, a stock is approaching overfishing, a stock is overfished, a stock is approaching an overfished condition, or existing remedial action taken to end overfishing or rebuild an overfished stock has not resulted in adequate progress. In PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 addition, the Secretary has determined that the highly migratory species blacknose shark is overfished and overfishing is occurring. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Seanbob Kelly, telephone: (301) 713– 2341. Pursuant to sections 304(e)(2) and (e)(7) of the Magnuson–Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson–Stevens Act), 16 U.S.C. 1854(e)(2) and (e)(7), and implementing regulations at 50 CFR 600.310(e)(2), NMFS, on behalf of the Secretary, notifies fishery management councils when overfishing is occurring, a stock is approaching overfishing, a stock is overfished, a stock is approaching an overfished condition, or existing action taken to end previously identified overfishing or rebuilding a previously identified overfished stock or stock complex has not resulted in adequate progress. On June 20, 2008, the NMFS approved Amendment 30A to the Fishery Management Plan for the Reef Fish Resources of the Gulf of Mexico and implemented it with a final rule published in the Federal Register (73 FR 38139; July 3, 2008). Amendment 30A established management targets and thresholds for Gulf of Mexico gray triggerfish that were previously undefined. Based on these new status determination criteria the NMFS found that the Gulf of Mexico gray triggerfish is overfished using an earlier stock assessment (SEDAR 9, 2006). Amendment 30A includes a rebuilding plan for Gulf of Mexico gray triggerfish. On July 8, 2008, the NMFS Southeast Regional Administrator sent a letter notifying the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council (South Atlantic Council) that South Atlantic red snapper is overfished. The South Atlantic Council must submit a rebuilding plan for red snapper within one year of that notification. On July 21, 2008, the NMFS Northeast Regional Administrator sent a letter notifying the New England Fishery Management Council (New England Council) that smooth skate is overfished and that thorny skate is undergoing overfishing. Thorny skate is currently under a rebuilding plan. The New England Council must therefore ensure that overfishing is ended and that the stock rebuilds on schedule. Copies of the notification letters sent to the fishery management councils for the aforementioned determinations are available at http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/ sfa/statusoffisheries/SOSmain.htm.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On January 28, 2008, the Department published a notice of 
initiation of administrative review of the antidumping duty order on 
certain cased pencils from the People's Republic of China, covering the 
period December 1, 2006 through November 30, 2007. See Initiation of 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request 
for Revocation in Part, 73 FR 4829 (January 28, 2008). The current 
deadline for the preliminary results of this administrative review is 
September 2, 2008.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ We note that Monday, September 1, 2008, is 245 days after 
December 31, 2007, the last day of the anniversary month of the 
antidumping order for this proceeding. September 1, 2008, is Labor 
Day. When a deadline falls on a weekend or federal holiday, the 
Department's practice is to use the next business day as the 
appropriate deadline. See Notice of Clarification: Application of 
``Next Business Day'' Rule for Administrative Determination 
Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930, As Amended, 70 FR 
24533 (May 10, 2005).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Statutory Time Limits

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') to 
issue the preliminary results of an administrative review within 245 
days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which 
a review is requested and the final results of review within 120 days 
after the date on which the preliminary results are published. If it is 
not practicable to complete the review within the time period, section 
751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend these deadlines 
to a maximum of 365 days and 180 days, respectively.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results

    The Department requires additional time to review and analyze the 
sales and cost responses in this administrative review. Moreover, the 
Department requires additional time to analyze complex issues related 
to surrogate value selections. Because the Department requires 
additional time to analyze the information, issue supplemental 
questionnaires, and possibly verify the information, it is not 
practicable to complete this review within the originally anticipated 
time limit (i.e., by September 2, 2008). Therefore, the Department is 
extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results by 
112 days to not later than December 22, 2008, in accordance with 
section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
