The frozen warmwater shrimp and prawn products included in the scope of this investigation, 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), 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 investigation. 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 investigation. Excluded from the scope are: (1) Breaded shrimp and prawns (HTS 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 (HTS subheadings 0306.23.00.20 and 0306.23.00.40); (4) shrimp and prawns in prepared meals (HTS subheading 1605.20.05.10); (5) dried shrimp and prawns; (6) canned warmwater shrimp and prawns (HTS subheading 1605.20.10.40); (7) certain dusted shrimp; and (8) certain battered shrimp. Dusted shrimp is a shrimp–based 2 ‘‘Tails’’ in this context means the tail fan, which includes the telson and the uropods. VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:07 Aug 19, 2009 Jkt 217001 42051 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 individually quick frozen (‘‘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 investigation are currently classified under the following HTS 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On March 6, 2008, notice was published in the Federal Register (73 FR 12137) that a request for a permit to take the species identified above had been submitted by the MMRP. The permit was issued on June 30, 2009 (74 FR 33210), under the authority of the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq.), the regulations governing the taking and importing of marine mammals (50 CFR part 216), the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), and the regulations governing the taking, importing, and exporting of endangered and threatened species (50 CFR parts 222–226). Notice of the proposed amendment was published on June 30, 2009 (74 FR 33210). Permit No. 10137 authorizes the MMRP to: (1) assess survivorship, reproductive rates, pup production, condition, abundance, movements among subpopulations, and incidence and causes of injury or mortality of Hawaiian monk seals; (2) diagnose disease, monitor exposure to disease, and develop normal baseline hematology and biochemistry parameters; (3) conduct activities to increase survival of individuals; and (4) investigate foraging ecology to determine foraging locations, diving parameters, characteristics of foraging substrate, and prey identification and foraging behaviors. Permit No. 10137–01 amends and replaces Permit No. 10137. Permit No. 10137–01 authorizes the activities describe above and includes authorization to translocate six pups from French Frigate Shoals to Nihoa Island in 2009. Further translocations of up to 20 pup or juvenile between islands/atolls within the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, as described in the original permit application, will be deferred until a separate Endangered Species Act section 7 consultation is VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:07 Aug 19, 2009 Jkt 217001 completed.

In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), an environmental assessment was prepared analyzing the effects of the permitted activities. After a Finding of No Significant Impact, the determination was made that it was not necessary to prepare an environmental impact statement. Issuance of this permit, as required by the ESA, was based on a finding that such permit: (1) was applied for in good faith; (2) will not operate to the disadvantage of such endangered species; and (3) is consistent with the purposes and policies set forth in section 2 of the ESA.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On March 6, 2008, notice was published in 
the Federal Register (73 FR 12137) that a request for a permit to take 
the species identified above had been submitted by the MMRP. The permit 
was issued on June 30, 2009 (74 FR 33210), under the authority of the 
Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1361 et 
seq.), the regulations governing the taking and importing of marine 
mammals (50 CFR part 216), the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as 
amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), and the regulations governing 
the taking, importing, and exporting of endangered and threatened 
species (50 CFR parts 222-226). Notice of the proposed amendment was 
published on June 30, 2009 (74 FR 33210).
    Permit No. 10137 authorizes the MMRP to: (1) assess survivorship, 
reproductive rates, pup production, condition, abundance, movements 
among subpopulations, and incidence and causes of injury or mortality 
of Hawaiian monk seals; (2) diagnose disease, monitor exposure to 
disease, and develop normal baseline hematology and biochemistry 
parameters; (3) conduct activities to increase survival of individuals; 
and (4) investigate foraging ecology to determine foraging locations, 
diving parameters, characteristics of foraging substrate, and prey 
identification and foraging behaviors.

No. 10137-01 authorizes the activities describe above and includes 
authorization to translocate six pups from French Frigate Shoals to

juvenile between islands/atolls within the Northwestern Hawaiian 
Islands, as described in the original permit application, will be 
deferred until a separate Endangered Species Act section 7 consultation 
is completed. At such time, NMFS proposes to amend Permit No. 10137-01 
to include additional translocations of seals. Permit No. 10137-01 
expires on June 30, 2014.
