Abstract The Cooperative Oxford Laboratory (COL) in Oxford, Maryland was established in 1960 and has operated under a cooperative agreement between NOAA and the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) for the last 12 years. Research conducted by COL scientists has supported efforts to sustain historic fisheries along the Atlantic coast of the United States for nearly 50 years. As COL’s 50th anniversary approaches, staff at the National Centers of Coastal Ocean Science will undertake a cultural history project to document and preserve the rich and unique history of the COL, its importance to the local seafood industry, and the cultural memory of the ‘‘oyster years.’’ In VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:59 Apr 22, 2009 Jkt 217001 addition to collecting historical documents, photographs and artifacts, the researchers will conduct 25 to 30 videotaped oral history interviews with key members from the local community who have historic knowledge of COL and local, coastal resources. This includes scientists, resource managers, watermen, business owners, and knowledgeable members of the general community. The goal of the oral history project is to collect stories about the successes and challenges related to preserving the local seafood industry, and to document the rich history and local heritage tied to the COL. These videotaped oral histories will be archived with local, regional, and national organizations. In addition, the researchers will edit clips from the interviews to create short documentaries, which will be made available to local, regional, and national museums and other entities. II. Method of Collection Researchers will conduct videotaped, unstructured oral history interviews. III. Data OMB Control Number: None. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Regular submission. Affected Public: Individuals or households. Estimated Number of Respondents: 30 (for the entire project). Estimated Time per Response: 1 hour. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 30 hours. Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: $0. IV. Request for Comments Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden (including hours and cost) of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for OMB approval of this information collection; they also will become a matter of public record.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On September 30, 2008, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) published a notice of initiation of antidumping and countervailing duty administrative reviews and requests for revocation in part for certain frozen fish fillets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam covering the period August 1, 2007, through July 31, 2008. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 73 FR 56795, (September 30, 2008). The preliminary results are currently due on May 3, 2009. Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘Act’’), and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1) require the Department to issue the preliminary results in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the order for which the administrative review was requested. The Department may, however, extend the deadline for completion of the preliminary results of an administrative review to 365 days if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the E:\FR\FM\23APN1.SGM 23APN1 18550 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 77 / Thursday, April 23, 2009 / Notices foregoing time period. See section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(h)(2). The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results within this time limit. The Department is extending the deadline because it intends to provide parties additional time to submit surrogate value data and thus will require additional time to analyze these data. Furthermore, the Department recently rescinded a changed circumstance review for Vinh Hoan Co., Ltd. because it determined that Vinh Hoan’s circumstances would be best addressed in the context of this administrative review. See Certain Frozen Fish Fillets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Rescission of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review, 74 FR 7659 (February 19, 2009). The Department requires additional time to address these circumstances in this review. We are therefore extending the time for the completion of the preliminary results of this review by 120 days to August 31, 2009.

ACTION: Notice; public comment on an application for exempted fishing permit. sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES AGENCY: SUMMARY: This notice announces the public comment period for an exempted fishing permit (EFP) application from the Best Use Cooperative (BUC). If granted, this permit would allow three BUC vessels to remove halibut from a codend on the deck, and release those fish back to the water after determining the physical condition of the halibut with the International Pacific Halibut Commission method for predicting halibut mortality. The EFP would allow VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:59 Apr 22, 2009 Jkt 217001 operators of BUC non–pelagic trawl vessels to study methods for reducing halibut mortality in trawl fisheries by evaluating various fishing and handling practices. This activity has the potential to promote the objectives of the Magnuson–Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act by assessing techniques for reducing halibut discard mortality in non–pelagic trawl fisheries. DATES: Written comments must be received by May 8, 2009. ADDRESSES: Send comments to Sue Salveson, Assistant Regional Administrator, Sustainable Fisheries Division, Alaska Region, NMFS, Attn: Ellen Sebastian. You may submit comments, identified by ‘‘RIN 0648– XN80,’’ by any one of the following methods: • E-mail: EFP0902@noaa.gov.

Box 21668, Juneau, AK 99802. • Fax: 907–586–7557. • Hand delivery to the Federal Building: 709 West 9th Street, Room 420A, Juneau, AK. Copies of the EFP application and the basis for a categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act are available by writing to the Alaska Region, NMFS, P. O. Box 21668, Juneau, AK 99802, Attn: Ellen Sebastian. The application also is available from the Alaska Region, NMFS website at http:// alaskafisheries.noaa.gov/. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jeff Hartman, 907–586–7442 or jeff.hartman@noaa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NMFS manages the domestic groundfish fisheries in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Area (BSAI) under the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the BSAI (FMP), which the Council prepared under the Magnuson–Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act. Regulations governing the groundfish fisheries of the BSAI appear at 50 CFR parts 600 and 679. The FMP and the implementing regulations at § 600.745(b) and § 679.6 allow the NMFS Regional Administrator to authorize, for limited experimental purposes, fishing that would otherwise be prohibited. Procedures for issuing EFPs are contained in the implementing regulations. The International Pacific Halibut Commission (IPHC) and NMFS manage fishing for Pacific halibut (Hippoglossus stenolepis) through regulations PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 established under the authority of the Convention between the United States and Canada for the Preservation of the Halibut Fishery of the Northern Pacific Ocean and Bering Sea (Convention) and the Northern Pacific Halibut Act of 1982 (Halibut Act). The IPHC promulgates regulations pursuant to the Convention. The IPHC’s regulations are subject to approval by the Secretary of State with concurrence from the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary). On March 23, 2009, NMFS published a notice for receipt of an application from the Best Use Cooperative (BUC) for an EFP that evaluates handling methods to improve discard survival of incidentally caught halibut (74 FR 12113). Review of the EFP application was included on the published agenda for the April 2009 North Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) meeting. The Council’s Scientific and Statistical Committee (SSC) and the Advisory Panel (AP) reviewed the application, provided opportunity for public comment, and recommended the Council approve issuance of the EFP. After hearing the recommendations of the SSC and AP, and not expressing disagreement with those recommendations, the Council did not further consider the EFP application and provided no additional method of public testimony on this item at the Council meeting. Regulations at § 600.745(b)(3) requires NMFS to provide opportunity for public comment on an EFP application either through a Federal Register notice and/or during a Council meeting. Because NMFS has determined that this application for an EFP warrants further consideration and because the public was not provided the opportunity to provide public comment to the Council at its April 2009 meeting, NMFS is providing this additional opportunity for public review and comment on this EFP application. Background Regulations implemented by the IPHC allow Pacific halibut to be commercially harvested by the directed North Pacific longline fishery only. Halibut caught incidentally in other fisheries, such as non–pelagic trawl fisheries, must be sampled by observers and returned to the ocean as soon as possible. Regulations implementing the FMP establish annual halibut bycatch mortality limits, also referred to as halibut prohibited species catch (PSC) limit, for the groundfish fisheries. Fisheries close when they reach their seasonal or annual halibut PSC limit even if the allowable catch of groundfish is not yet caught.

Certain Frozen Fish Fillets from the Socialist Republic of 
Vietnam: Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of the Fifth 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

EFFECTIVE DATE: April 23, 2009.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Alan Ray or Javier Barrientos, AD/CVD 
Operations, Office 9, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and

5403 and (202) 482-2243, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On September 30, 2008, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
published a notice of initiation of antidumping and countervailing duty 
administrative reviews and requests for revocation in part for certain 
frozen fish fillets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam covering the 
period August 1, 2007, through July 31, 2008. See Initiation of 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests 
for Revocation in Part, 73 FR 56795, (September 30, 2008). The 
preliminary results are currently due on May 3, 2009.

Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(``Act''), and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1) require the Department to issue the 
preliminary results in an administrative review of an antidumping duty 
order 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the order 
for which the administrative review was requested. The Department may, 
however, extend the deadline for completion of the preliminary results 
of an administrative review to 365 days if it determines it is not 
practicable to complete the review within the

[[Page 18550]]

foregoing time period. See section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.214(h)(2).
    The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the 
preliminary results within this time limit. The Department is extending 
the deadline because it intends to provide parties additional time to 
submit surrogate value data and thus will require additional time to 
analyze these data. Furthermore, the Department recently rescinded a 
changed circumstance review for Vinh Hoan Co., Ltd. because it 
determined that Vinh Hoan's circumstances would be best addressed in 
the context of this administrative review. See Certain Frozen Fish 
Fillets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Rescission of 
Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review, 74 FR 7659 (February 19, 
2009). The Department requires additional time to address these 
circumstances in this review. We are therefore extending the time for 
the completion of the preliminary results of this review by 120 days to 
August 31, 2009.
    This notice is published in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of 
the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).

    Dated: April 16, 2009.

Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Operations.
