Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and section 351.213(h) of the Department’s regulations, we determine that it is not practicable to complete this administrative review within the statutory time limit of 245 days. The Department requires additional time to analyze the production inputs that Foshan Shunde utilized to compile its Section D factors of production response. Additionally, the Department requires additional time to consider comments from interested parties concerning the proper valuation of Foshan Shunde’s production inputs. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and section 351.213(h)(2) of the Department’s regulations, the Department is extending the time limit for the completion of these preliminary results by 120 days. The deadline for completion of the preliminary results is now September 1, 2009. The final results will continue to be due 120 days after the date of publication of the notice of preliminary results. This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act. Dated: April 24, 2009. John M.

    NMFS expects to take action on a ESA section 10(a)(1)(A) submittal 
received from the applicant. In an application received on February 27, 
2009, WDFW applied to NMFS for an ESA section 10(a)(1)(A) permit for 
the direct take of ESA-listed threatened Puget Sound Chinook salmon and 
threatened Puget Sound steelhead from the South Fork Skykomish River in 
Washington state. The existing fishway at Sunset Falls will continue to 
be operated to trap Chinook salmon and steelhead arriving at the trap, 
and to haul trapped fish upstream for release into available habitat 
above three impassable waterfalls.
