SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On April 7, 2008, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published notices of initiation of the administrative reviews of the 
antidumping duty orders on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Brazil, 
Ecuador, India, Thailand, the People's Republic of China (PRC) and the 
Socialist Republic of Vietnam (Vietnam), covering the period February 
1, 2007, through January 31, 2008. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp 
from Brazil, Ecuador, India, and Thailand: Notice of Initiation of 
Administrative Reviews, 73 FR 18754 (April 7, 2008); and Notice of 
Initiation of Administrative Reviews of the Antidumping Duty Orders on 
Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam and the 
People's Republic of China, 73 FR 18739 (April 7, 2008).
    During the period May through August 2008, the Department selected 
mandatory respondents in each of the above-mentioned administrative 
reviews.\1\ See the May 27, 2008, Memorandum from David Goldberger to 
James Maeder entitled ``2007-2008 Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review of Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Ecuador: Selection of 
Respondents for Individual Review''; the May 27, 2008, Memorandum from 
Elizabeth Eastwood to James Maeder entitled ``2007-2008 Antidumping 
Duty Administrative Review of Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from 
India: Selection of Respondents for Individual Review''; the May 27, 
2008, Memorandum from Irina Itkin to James Maeder entitled 
``Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Certain Frozen Warmwater 
Shrimp from Thailand: Selection of Respondents for Individual Review;'' 
and the June 16, 2008, Memorandum to James C. Doyle from Susan 
Pulongbarit entitled ``2007-2008 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review 
of Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the People's Republic of China 
- Selection of Respondents for Individual Review.'' On August 25, 2008, 
we selected an additional respondent in the administrative review of 
frozen warmwater shrimp from the PRC. See Memorandum to James C. Doyle 
from Erin Begnal entitled ``2007-2008 Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review: Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the People's Republic of China

warmwater shrimp from Brazil on June 16, 2008. See Certain Frozen

Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination in an 
administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the 
anniversary month of an order or finding for which a review is 
requested. Consistent with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the 
Department may extend the 245-day period to 365 days if it is not 
practicable to complete the review within a 245-day period. The 
deadline for the preliminary results of these reviews is currently 
October 31, 2008.
    The Department determines that completion of the preliminary 
results of these administrative reviews within the statutory time 
period is not practicable. We are unable to analyze cost allegations as 
well as third-country market issues in the market-economy reviews, or 
issue supplemental questionnaires and conduct verification in the 
market and non-market economy reviews within the current timeframe. The 
Department thus requires additional time to conduct its analysis for 
each company in each of these reviews. Therefore, in accordance with 
section 751(a)(3)(A) the Act, we are extending the time period for 
issuing the preliminary results of these reviews until March 2, 
2009.\2\ The final results continue to be due 120 days after the 
publication of the preliminary results. This notice is published 
pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ The Department also extended the administrative review of 
frozen warmwater shrimp from Vietnam until March 2, 2009. See Third 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Certain Frozen Warmwater 
Shrimp from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Extension of Time 
Limit for the Preliminary Results, 73 FR 54139 (September 18, 2008).
