This review covers 156 producers/exporters 1 of the subject merchandise to the United States. The period of review (POR) is February 1, 2007, through January 31, 2008. After analyzing the comments received, we have made no changes in the margin calculations. Therefore, the final results do not differ from the preliminary results. The final weightedaverage dumping margins for the reviewed firms are listed below in the section entitled ‘‘Final Results of Review.’’ DATES: Effective Date: July 13, 2009. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Elizabeth Eastwood or Henry Almond, AD/CVD Operations, Office 2, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone (202) 482–3874 or (202) 482– 0049, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background This review covers 156 producers/ exporters. The respondents which the Department selected for individual review are Devi Sea Foods Limited (Devi) and Falcon Marine Exports Limited (Falcon). The respondents which were not selected for individual review are listed in the ‘‘Final Results of Review’’ section of this notice. On March 9, 2009, the Department published in the Federal Register the preliminary results of administrative review of the antidumping duty order on shrimp from India. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From India: Preliminary Results and Preliminary Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 74 FR 9991 (Mar. 9, 2009) (Preliminary Results). 1 Collapsed entities are treated as one producer/ exporter. PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 33409 We invited parties to comment on our preliminary results of review. In April 2009, we received case and rebuttal briefs from the petitioner (i.e., the Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Committee), a group of 32 U.S. shrimp processors,2 and the two respondents selected for individual examination (i.e., Devi and Falcon). The Department has conducted this administrative review in accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Scope of the Order The scope of this order includes certain frozen warmwater shrimp and prawns, whether wild-caught (ocean harvested) or farm-raised (produced by aquaculture), head-on or head-off, shellon or peeled, tail-on or tail-off,3 deveined or not deveined, cooked or raw, or otherwise processed in frozen form. The frozen warmwater shrimp and prawn products included in the scope of this order, regardless of definitions in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), are products which are processed from warmwater shrimp and prawns through freezing and which are sold in any count size. The products described above may be processed from any species of warmwater shrimp and prawns. Warmwater shrimp and prawns are generally classified in, but are not limited to, the Penaeidae family. Some examples of the farmed and wild-caught warmwater species include, but are not limited to, whiteleg shrimp (Penaeus vannemei), banana prawn (Penaeus merguiensis), fleshy prawn (Penaeus chinensis), giant river prawn (Macrobrachium rosenbergii), giant tiger prawn (Penaeus monodon), redspotted shrimp (Penaeus brasiliensis), southern brown shrimp (Penaeus subtilis), 2 These companies are: (1) Bayou Shrimp Processors, Inc.; (2) Biloxi Freezing & Processing Co.; (3) CF Gollot and Son Seafood, Inc.; (4) Carson and Co., Inc.; (5) Custom Pack, Inc.; (6) Deep Sea Foods Inc./Jubilee Foods; (7) Dominick’s Seafood, Inc.; (8) Dunamis Towing, Inc., (9) Fisherman’s Reef Shrimp Co., Inc.; (10) Golden Gulf Coast Pkg.

Frozen shrimp and prawns that are packed with marinade, spices or sauce are included in the scope of this order. In addition, food preparations, which are not ‘‘prepared meals,’’ that contain more than 20 percent by weight of shrimp or prawn are also included in the scope of this order. Excluded from the scope are: (1) Breaded shrimp and prawns (HTSUS subheading 1605.20.10.20); (2) shrimp and prawns generally classified in the Pandalidae family and commonly referred to as coldwater shrimp, in any state of processing; (3) fresh shrimp and prawns whether shell-on or peeled (HTSUS subheadings 0306.23.00.20 and 0306.23.00.40); (4) shrimp and prawns in prepared meals (HTSUS subheading 1605.20.05.10); (5) dried shrimp and prawns; (6) canned warmwater shrimp and prawns (HTSUS subheading 1605.20.10.40); (7) certain dusted shrimp; and (8) certain battered shrimp. Dusted shrimp is a shrimp-based product: (1) That is produced from fresh (or thawed-from-frozen) and peeled shrimp; (2) to which a ‘‘dusting’’ layer of rice or wheat flour of at least 95 percent purity has been applied; (3) with the entire surface of the shrimp flesh thoroughly and evenly coated with the flour; (4) with the non-shrimp content of the end product constituting between four and 10 percent of the product’s total weight after being dusted, but prior to being frozen; and (5) that is subjected to IQF freezing immediately after application of the dusting layer. Battered shrimp is a shrimp-based product that, when dusted in accordance with the definition of dusting above, is coated with a wet viscous layer containing egg and/or milk, and par-fried. The products covered by this order are currently classified under the following HTSUS subheadings: 0306.13.00.03, 0306.13.00.06, 0306.13.00.09, 0306.13.00.12, 0306.13.00.15, 0306.13.00.18, 0306.13.00.21, 0306.13.00.24, 0306.13.00.27, 0306.13.00.40, 1605.20.10.10, and 1605.20.10.30.

VerDate Nov<24>2008 18:36 Jul 10, 2009 Jkt 217001 Period of Review The POR is February 1, 2007, through January 31, 2008. Partial Rescission In the Preliminary Results, we assigned company-specific rates to Falcon, Manufacturer Falcon Marine Exports, Sandhya Aqua Exports, and Sandhya Aqua Exports Pvt. Ltd. However, after reviewing information from the 2008–2009 review, the Department has determined that two of these company names are duplicate names of the other two companies. The correct names of the companies listed in pairs above are Falcon and Sandhya Aqua Exports Pvt. Ltd. See the May 8, 2009, memorandum from Elizabeth Eastwood to the File, entitled, ‘‘Placing Public Information from the 2008–2009 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review on the Record of the 2007–2008 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review on Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India’’ (Name Clarification Memo). Therefore, the Department is rescinding this review with respect to Sandhya Aqua Exports and Manufacturer Falcon Marine Exports. Collapsing Prior to the Preliminary Results, one of the non-mandatory respondents in this case, Ananda Aqua Exports (AAE), informed the Department that it is affiliated with Ananda Foods (AF) and Ananda Aqua Applications (AAA), producers/exporters of shrimp in India. Consequently, it requested that the Department treat it and these two companies as a single entity for purposes of this administrative review. At the Department’s request, AAE, AF, and AAA (hereinafter referred to as ‘‘the Ananda Group’’) provided information to support this claim. Although the Ananda Group’s most recent submission, containing additional information with respect to the ownership of the three companies and the relationships among the owners, was filed in a timely manner, it was not received in time to consider for purposes of the preliminary results. Nonetheless, in the Preliminary Results we preliminarily determined that, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.401(f), it is appropriate to collapse the companies in the Ananda Group for purposes of this proceeding because: (1) Entities within the group are affiliated and two of these entities have production facilities for identical or similar merchandise that would not require significant retooling in order to restructure manufacturing priorities; and (2) a significant potential for PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 manipulation exists due to common ownership, overlapping management and board of directors, and intertwined operations. See Preliminary Results, 74 FR at 9994. We have now analyzed the Ananda Group’s March 2009 submission clarifying certain aspects of the companies’ partners, including familial relationships of partners/owners of the three companies. Based on this additional information provided by the Ananda Group, we continue to find that it is appropriate to collapse the companies AAA, AAE, and AF into the Ananda Group, and consequently we have continued to treat these companies as a single entity for purposes of our final determination. Cost of Production As discussed in the preliminary results, we conducted an investigation to determine whether Devi and Falcon made third country sales of the foreign like product during the POR at prices below their costs of production (COP) within the meaning of section 773(b) of the Act. See Preliminary Results, 74 FR at 9997. For these final results, we performed the cost test following the same methodology as in the Preliminary Results. We found 20 percent or more of each respondent’s sales of a given product during the reporting period were at prices less than the weighted-average COP for this period. Thus, we determined that these below-cost sales were made in ‘‘substantial quantities’’ within an extended period of time and at prices which did not permit the recovery of all costs within a reasonable period of time in the normal course of trade. See sections 773(b)(1)–(2) of the Act. Therefore, for purposes of these final results, we found that Devi and Falcon made below-cost sales not in the ordinary course of trade. Consequently, we disregarded these sales for each respondent and used the remaining sales as the basis for determining normal value pursuant to section 773(b)(1) of the Act.

Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), because Devi and Falcon reported the entered value for some or all of their U.S. sales, we have calculated importerspecific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of the sales which entered value was reported. For Falcon’s U.S. sales reported without entered values, we have calculated importerspecific per-unit duty assessment rates by aggregating the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales and dividing this amount by the total quantity of those sales. To determine whether the duty assessment rates are de minimis, in 4 This rate is based on the weighted average of the margins calculation for those companies selected for individual review, excluding de minimis margins or margins based entirely on adverse facts available (AFA). 5 The Department initiated the 2007–2008 administrative review for this company under the name Sri Chandrakantha Marine Exports, Ltd. However, subsequent to the Preliminary Results, we discovered that the company’s correct name is Sri Chandrakantha Marine Exports. See Name Clarification Memo. Therefore, we have included this company in our final results under its correct name. 6 The Department initiated the 2007–2008 administrative review for this company under the name Teekay Maine P. Ltd. However, subsequent to the Preliminary Results, we discovered that the company’s correct name is Teekay Marine P. Ltd. See Name Clarification Memo. Therefore, we have included this company in our final results under its correct name. VerDate Nov<24>2008 18:36 Jul 10, 2009 Jkt 217001 accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we have calculated importer-specific ad valorem ratios based on the estimated entered value. For the companies which were not selected for individual review, we have calculated an assessment rate based on the weighted average of the cash deposit rates calculated for the companies selected for individual review excluding any which are de minimis or determined entirely on AFA. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we will instruct CBP to liquidate without regard to antidumping duties any entries for which the assessment rate is de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent). The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of review. The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by companies included in these final results of review for which the reviewed companies did not know their merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate established in the less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.

The described research is part of a Cooperative Research Program Grant and the Emergency Disaster Relief Program. The Cooperative Research Program is a means of involving commercial and/or recreational fishermen in the collection of fundamental fisheries information. Resource collection efforts support the development and evaluation of fisheries management and regulatory options. The Emergency Disaster Relief Program is administered by the Gulf States Marine Fisheries Commission, to assist in an assessment of the status of the for– hire fishery fleets operating in counties impacted by the 2005 hurricane season. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The proposed collection for scientific research involves activities otherwise prohibited by regulations implementing the Fishery Management Plan for the Reef Fish Resources of the Gulf of Mexico. The applicants require authorization to harvest and possess snapper and grouper species for scientific research activities during the period from June 15, 2009, through June 15, 2012. Specimens would be collected from Federal waters off the west coast of Florida. Sampling would occur during normal fishing operations of the recreational for–hire fishery. Data collections for this study would support improved information about the catch, bycatch, discards, discard mortality, age structure and sex determinations for species in the reef fish complex. These data would provide insight on a stock’s resilience to fishing and would help refine estimates of long–term biological productivity of the stocks. It is anticipated project results would yield valuable data within this fishery. NMFS finds this application warrants further consideration. Based on a preliminary review, NMFS intends to issue an EFP. Possible conditions the agency may impose on this permit, if it is indeed granted, include but are not limited to, a prohibition of conducting research within marine protected areas, marine sanctuaries, or special management zones, without additional authorization. Additionally, NMFS may prohibit the possession of Nassau or goliath grouper and would require any sea turtles taken incidentally during the course of fishing or scientific research activities to be handled with due care to prevent injury to live specimens, observed for activity, and returned to the water. A final decision on issuance of the EFP will depend on a NMFS review of public comments received on the application, consultations with the affected states, the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council, and the U.S. Coast Guard, and a determination that it is consistent with all applicable laws.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    This review covers 156 producers/exporters. The respondents which 
the Department selected for individual review are Devi Sea Foods 
Limited (Devi) and Falcon Marine Exports Limited (Falcon). The 
respondents which were not selected for individual review are listed in 
the ``Final Results of Review'' section of this notice.
    On March 9, 2009, the Department published in the Federal Register 
the preliminary results of administrative review of the antidumping 
duty order on shrimp from India. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp 
From India: Preliminary Results and Preliminary Partial Rescission of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 74 FR 9991 (Mar. 9, 2009)

    We invited parties to comment on our preliminary results of review. 
In April 2009, we received case and rebuttal briefs from the petitioner 
(i.e., the Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Committee), a group of 32 U.S. 
shrimp processors,\2\ and the two respondents selected for individual 
examination (i.e., Devi and Falcon).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department has conducted this administrative review in 
accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act).

Scope of the Order

    The scope of this order includes certain frozen warmwater shrimp 
and prawns, whether wild-caught (ocean harvested) or farm-raised 
(produced by aquaculture), head-on or head-off, shell-on or peeled, 
tail-on or tail-off,\3\ deveined or not deveined, cooked or raw, or 
otherwise processed in frozen form.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ ``Tails'' in this context means the tail fan, which includes 
the telson and the uropods.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The frozen warmwater shrimp and prawn products included in the 
scope of this order, regardless of definitions in the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), are products which are processed 
from warmwater shrimp and prawns through freezing and which are sold in 
any count size.
    The products described above may be processed from any species of 
warmwater shrimp and prawns. Warmwater shrimp and prawns are generally 
classified in, but are not limited to, the Penaeidae family. Some 
examples of the farmed and wild-caught warmwater species include, but 
are not limited to, whiteleg shrimp (Penaeus vannemei), banana prawn 
(Penaeus merguiensis), fleshy prawn (Penaeus chinensis), giant river 
prawn (Macrobrachium rosenbergii), giant tiger prawn (Penaeus monodon), 
redspotted shrimp (Penaeus brasiliensis), southern brown shrimp 
(Penaeus subtilis),

[[Page 33410]]

southern pink shrimp (Penaeus notialis), southern rough shrimp 
(Trachypenaeus curvirostris), southern white shrimp (Penaeus schmitti), 
blue shrimp (Penaeus stylirostris), western white shrimp (Penaeus 
occidentalis), and Indian white prawn (Penaeus indicus).
    Frozen shrimp and prawns that are packed with marinade, spices or 
sauce are included in the scope of this order. In addition, food 
preparations, which are not ``prepared meals,'' that contain more than 
20 percent by weight of shrimp or prawn are also included in the scope 
of this order.
    Excluded from the scope are: (1) Breaded shrimp and prawns (HTSUS 
subheading 1605.20.10.20); (2) shrimp and prawns generally classified 
in the Pandalidae family and commonly referred to as coldwater shrimp, 
in any state of processing; (3) fresh shrimp and prawns whether shell-
on or peeled (HTSUS subheadings 0306.23.00.20 and 0306.23.00.40); (4) 
shrimp and prawns in prepared meals (HTSUS subheading 1605.20.05.10); 
(5) dried shrimp and prawns; (6) canned warmwater shrimp and prawns 
(HTSUS subheading 1605.20.10.40); (7) certain dusted shrimp; and (8) 
certain battered shrimp. Dusted shrimp is a shrimp-based product: (1) 
That is produced from fresh (or thawed-from-frozen) and peeled shrimp; 
(2) to which a ``dusting'' layer of rice or wheat flour of at least 95 
percent purity has been applied; (3) with the entire surface of the 
shrimp flesh thoroughly and evenly coated with the flour; (4) with the 
non-shrimp content of the end product constituting between four and 10 
percent of the product's total weight after being dusted, but prior to 
being frozen; and (5) that is subjected to IQF freezing immediately 
after application of the dusting layer. Battered shrimp is a shrimp-
based product that, when dusted in accordance with the definition of 
dusting above, is coated with a wet viscous layer containing egg and/or 
milk, and par-fried.
    The products covered by this order are currently classified under 
the following HTSUS subheadings: 0306.13.00.03, 0306.13.00.06, 
0306.13.00.09, 0306.13.00.12, 0306.13.00.15, 0306.13.00.18, 
0306.13.00.21, 0306.13.00.24, 0306.13.00.27, 0306.13.00.40, 
1605.20.10.10, and 1605.20.10.30. These HTSUS subheadings are provided 
for convenience and for customs purposes only and are not dispositive, 
but rather the written description of the scope of this order is 
dispositive.

Period of Review

    The POR is February 1, 2007, through January 31, 2008.

Partial Rescission

    In the Preliminary Results, we assigned company-specific rates to 
Falcon, Manufacturer Falcon Marine Exports, Sandhya Aqua Exports, and 
Sandhya Aqua Exports Pvt. Ltd. However, after reviewing information 
from the 2008-2009 review, the Department has determined that two of 
these company names are duplicate names of the other two companies. The 
correct names of the companies listed in pairs above are Falcon and 
Sandhya Aqua Exports Pvt. Ltd. See the May 8, 2009, memorandum from 
Elizabeth Eastwood to the File, entitled, ``Placing Public Information 
from the 2008-2009 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review on the Record 
of the 2007-2008 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review on Certain 
Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India'' (Name Clarification Memo). 
Therefore, the Department is rescinding this review with respect to 
Sandhya Aqua Exports and Manufacturer Falcon Marine Exports.

Collapsing

    Prior to the Preliminary Results, one of the non-mandatory 
respondents in this case, Ananda Aqua Exports (AAE), informed the 
Department that it is affiliated with Ananda Foods (AF) and Ananda Aqua 
Applications (AAA), producers/exporters of shrimp in India. 
Consequently, it requested that the Department treat it and these two 
companies as a single entity for purposes of this administrative 
review. At the Department's request, AAE, AF, and AAA (hereinafter 
referred to as ``the Ananda Group'') provided information to support 
this claim. Although the Ananda Group's most recent submission, 
containing additional information with respect to the ownership of the 
three companies and the relationships among the owners, was filed in a 
timely manner, it was not received in time to consider for purposes of 
the preliminary results.
    Nonetheless, in the Preliminary Results we preliminarily determined 
that, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.401(f), it is appropriate to 
collapse the companies in the Ananda Group for purposes of this 
proceeding because: (1) Entities within the group are affiliated and 
two of these entities have production facilities for identical or 
similar merchandise that would not require significant retooling in 
order to restructure manufacturing priorities; and (2) a significant 
potential for manipulation exists due to common ownership, overlapping 
management and board of directors, and intertwined operations. See 
Preliminary Results, 74 FR at 9994.
    We have now analyzed the Ananda Group's March 2009 submission 
clarifying certain aspects of the companies' partners, including 
familial relationships of partners/owners of the three companies. Based 
on this additional information provided by the Ananda Group, we 
continue to find that it is appropriate to collapse the companies AAA, 
AAE, and AF into the Ananda Group, and consequently we have continued 
to treat these companies as a single entity for purposes of our final 
determination.

Cost of Production

    As discussed in the preliminary results, we conducted an 
investigation to determine whether Devi and Falcon made third country 
sales of the foreign like product during the POR at prices below their 
costs of production (COP) within the meaning of section 773(b) of the 
Act. See Preliminary Results, 74 FR at 9997. For these final results, 
we performed the cost test following the same methodology as in the 
Preliminary Results.
    We found 20 percent or more of each respondent's sales of a given 
product during the reporting period were at prices less than the 
weighted-average COP for this period. Thus, we determined that these 
below-cost sales were made in ``substantial quantities'' within an 
extended period of time and at prices which did not permit the recovery 
of all costs within a reasonable period of time in the normal course of 
trade. See sections 773(b)(1)-(2) of the Act.
    Therefore, for purposes of these final results, we found that Devi 
and Falcon made below-cost sales not in the ordinary course of trade. 
Consequently, we disregarded these sales for each respondent and used 
the remaining sales as the basis for determining normal value pursuant 
to section 773(b)(1) of the Act.

* De minimis.

Assessment

    The Department shall determine, and Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ This rate is based on the weighted average of the margins 
calculation for those companies selected for individual review, 
excluding de minimis margins or margins based entirely on adverse 
facts available (AFA).
    \5\ The Department initiated the 2007-2008 administrative review 
for this company under the name Sri Chandrakantha Marine Exports, 
Ltd. However, subsequent to the Preliminary Results, we discovered 
that the company's correct name is Sri Chandrakantha Marine Exports. 
See Name Clarification Memo. Therefore, we have included this 
company in our final results under its correct name.
    \6\ The Department initiated the 2007-2008 administrative review 
for this company under the name Teekay Maine P. Ltd. However, 
subsequent to the Preliminary Results, we discovered that the 
company's correct name is Teekay Marine P. Ltd. See Name 
Clarification Memo. Therefore, we have included this company in our 
final results under its correct name.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), because Devi and Falcon reported 
the entered value for some or all of their U.S. sales, we have 
calculated importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on 
the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the 
examined sales to the total entered value of the sales which entered 
value was reported. For Falcon's U.S. sales reported without entered 
values, we have calculated importer-specific per-unit duty assessment 
rates by aggregating the total amount of antidumping duties calculated 
for the examined sales and dividing this amount by the total quantity 
of those sales. To determine whether the duty assessment rates are de 
minimis, in accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 
351.106(c)(2), we have calculated importer-specific ad valorem ratios 
based on the estimated entered value.
    For the companies which were not selected for individual review, we 
have calculated an assessment rate based on the weighted average of the 
cash deposit rates calculated for the companies selected for individual 
review excluding any which are de minimis or determined entirely on 
AFA.
    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we will instruct CBP to liquidate 
without regard to antidumping duties any entries for which the 
assessment rate is de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent). The 
Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 
after the date of publication of these final results of review.
    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). This 
clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the 
POR produced by companies included in these final results of review for 
which the reviewed companies did not know their merchandise was 
destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP 
to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate established in 
the less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation if there is no rate for 
the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    Further, the following deposit requirements will be effective for 
all shipments of shrimp from India entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the 
final results of this administrative review, as provided for by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rates for the reviewed 
companies will be the rates shown above, except if the rate is less 
than 0.50 percent, de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 
351.106(c)(1), the cash deposit will be zero; (2) for previously 
investigated companies not listed above, the cash deposit rate will 
continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recent 
period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, or 
the LTFV investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate 
will be the rate established for the most recent period for the 
manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all 
other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 10.17 percent, the 
all-others rate established in the LTFV investigation. See Notice of 
Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and 
Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India, 70 
FR 5147, 5148 (Feb. 1, 2005). These deposit requirements shall remain 
in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility, under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2), to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to

[[Page 33414]]

liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure 
to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary's 
presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the 
subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written 
notification of return/destruction of APO materials or conversion to 
judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with 
the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.
    We are issuing and publishing these results of review in accordance 
with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: July 7, 2009.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
