This notice constitutes the antidumping duty order with respect to welded line pipe from the PRC pursuant to section 736(a) of the Act. Interested parties may contact the Department’s Central Records Unit, Room 1117 of the main Commerce building, for copies of an updated list of antidumping duty orders currently in effect. This order is published in accordance with section 736(a) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.211. The subject modification to Permit No. 1596–01, issued on August 21, 2008, is requested under the authority of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) and the regulations governing the taking, importing, and exporting of endangered and threatened species (50 CFR 222– 226). Permit No. 1596–01 authorizes the permit holder to capture, measure, weigh, blood and tissue sample, photograph, flipper and PIT tag, satellite tag, and attach a VHF/TDR/sonic tag/ video system to leatherback sea turtles during research activities conducted off the western coast of the continental United States. The permit holder requests authorization to annually fat biopsy and ultrasound up to 38 leatherback sea turtles as part of a health and nutritional assessment of this species. The permit holder also requests authority to close approach and attach VHR/TDR/sonic tag/GPS/video camera units by suction cup on up to 20 leatherback sea turtles annually, and to later capture the same animals to remove the unit and then sample, tag, and attach another VHR/TDR/sonic tag/ GPS/video camera unit to the animals before release. Additionally, the permit holder requests authorization to annually attach a VHR/TDR/sonic tag/ GPS unit and tissue sample 20 leatherback sea turtles using a biopsy pole. The permit currently authorizes researchers to attach the unit or tissue sample 20 animals, not both. The number of leatherback sea turtles captured would not increase under the modification, but the mix of activities conducted on each animal would. The research would continue to occur in waters off the coast of the western United States through February 1, 2012.
