Fees would help to provide security, operations and maintenance funds. The Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest is also planning to offer a $25 per person per year Annual Special Recreation Permit which would allow unlimited use of shooting ranges on the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest for a period of one year. DATES: If approved, Trembling Bridge and Cedar Creek Shooting Ranges will start charging fees upon their completion, scheduled in early 2010.

DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE Background Marine Fisheries Advisory Committee; Public Meetings On January 28, 2009, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) published the preliminary results of the third new shipper review for the period August 1, 2007, through January 31, 2008. See Certain Frozen Fish Fillets From the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Notice of Preliminary Results of the Third New Shipper Review, 74 FR 4920 (January 28, 2009) (‘‘Preliminary Results’’). The final results are currently due on April 16, 2009. Extension of Time Limits for Final Results Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘Act’’), and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(1) require the Department to issue the final results in a new shipper review of an antidumping duty order 90 days after the date on which the preliminary results are issued. The Department may, however, extend the deadline for completion of the final results of a new shipper review to 150 days if it determines that the case is extraordinarily complicated. See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2). The Department finds this case is extraordinarily complicated because a study recently placed on the record presents a number of complex factual and legal questions with regard to the surrogate value of whole fish. Therefore, the Department and interested parties need more time to analyze the study. Accordingly, because the Department requires additional time to complete the final results, we are extending the time for the completion of the final results of this review by 60 days to June 15, 2009. This notice is published in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2). Dated: April 15, 2009. John M. Andersen, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations. [FR Doc.
