For all other companies that were not reviewed (except Barilla G. e R.

The Department also intends to instruct CBP to collect cash deposits of estimated countervailing duties at the rates shown above on all shipments of the subject merchandise that are entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the final results of this administrative review. For all non–reviewed firms (except Barilla G. e R.

ACTION: Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare a draft environmental impact statement (DEIS); notice of scoping meetings; requests for comments. SUMMARY: The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council (Council) and NMFS intend to prepare a DEIS to describe and analyze management alternatives to be included in a generic amendment to five of the Fishery Management Plans (FMPs) for the Gulf of Mexico. These alternatives will consider measures to implement annual catch limits (ACLs), accountability measures (AMs), and record keeping and reporting requirements. This notice of intent solicits public comments on the scope of issues to be addressed in the DEIS. DATES: Written comments on the scope of issues to be addressed in the DEIS must be received by the Council October 15, 2009. A series of scoping meetings will be held in September 2009. See SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION below for the specific dates, times, and locations of the scoping meetings. ADDRESSES: Written comments on the scope of the DEIS, suggested alternatives and potential impacts, and requests for additional information should be sent to Rich Malinowski, NMFS, 263 13th Avenue South, Saint Petersburg, FL 33701–5505; fax 727–825–5308; or to the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council, 2203 North Lois Avenue, Suite 1100, Tampa, FL 33607; fax 813–348– 1711.

Locations, Dates and Times of Scoping Meetings On January 12, 2007, Congress amended the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (MSA) with passage of the MagnusonStevens Fishery Conservation and Management Reauthorization Act -(MSRA). While maintaining the requirement that ‘‘conservation and management measures shall prevent overfishing while achieving, on a continuing basis, the optimum yield from each fishery for the United States fishing industry,’’ the MSRA added new requirements to end and prevent overfishing. The new requirements include the use of ACLs, and ‘‘measures to ensure accountability’’ (AMs). Specifically, the MSRA requires that FMPs ‘‘establish a mechanism for specifying annual catch limits in the plan (including a multi-year plan), implementing regulations, or annual specifications, at a level such that overfishing does not occur in the fishery, including measures to ensure accountability’’ (Section 303(a)(15)). Further, the MSRA requires such measures be implemented by 2010 for fisheries determined by the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary) to be subject to overfishing and by 2011 for all other fisheries. The AMs are management controls that ensure the ACLs are not exceeded. Examples of AMs include corrective measures if overages occur and implementation of an in-season monitoring program. The generic amendment is intended to modify five of the Council’s FMPs. These include FMPs for: Reef Fish Resources, Shrimp, Stone Crab, Coral and Coral Reef Resources, and Red Drum. NMFS and the Council will develop these ACLs in co-operation with the Scientific and Statistical Committee. NMFS, in collaboration with the Council, will develop a DEIS to evaluate alternatives and actions for the ACLs. Some examples of these actions include: establishing sector specific ACLs, selecting levels of risk associated with species yields, considering removal or withdrawal of species from FMPs, and delegating species or species assemblages to state regulators. In accordance with NOAA’s Administrative Order NAO 216–6, Section 5.02(c), the Council has identified this preliminary range of alternatives as a means to initiate discussion for scoping purposes only. This may not represent the full range of alternatives that eventually will be evaluated by the Council.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 12, 2007, Congress amended the 
Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (MSA) with 
passage of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management 
Reauthorization Act -(MSRA). While maintaining the requirement that 
``conservation and management measures shall prevent overfishing while 
achieving, on a continuing basis, the optimum yield from each fishery 
for the United States fishing industry,'' the MSRA added new 
requirements to end and prevent overfishing. The new requirements 
include the use of ACLs, and ``measures to ensure accountability'' 
(AMs).
    Specifically, the MSRA requires that FMPs ``establish a mechanism 
for specifying annual catch limits in the plan (including a multi-year 
plan), implementing regulations, or annual specifications, at a level 
such that overfishing does not occur in the fishery, including measures 
to ensure accountability'' (Section 303(a)(15)). Further, the MSRA 
requires such measures be implemented by 2010 for fisheries determined 
by the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary) to be subject to overfishing 
and by 2011 for all other fisheries. The AMs are management controls 
that ensure the ACLs are not exceeded. Examples of AMs include 
corrective measures if overages occur and implementation of an in-
season monitoring program.
    The generic amendment is intended to modify five of the Council's 
FMPs. These include FMPs for: Reef Fish Resources, Shrimp, Stone Crab, 
Coral and Coral Reef Resources, and Red Drum. NMFS and the Council will 
develop these ACLs in co-operation with the Scientific and Statistical 
Committee. NMFS, in collaboration with the Council, will develop a DEIS 
to evaluate alternatives and actions for the ACLs. Some examples of 
these actions include: establishing sector specific ACLs, selecting 
levels of risk associated with species yields, considering removal or 
withdrawal of species from FMPs, and delegating species or species 
assemblages to state regulators.
    In accordance with NOAA's Administrative Order NAO 216-6, Section 
5.02(c), the Council has identified this preliminary range of 
alternatives as a means to initiate discussion for scoping purposes 
only. This may not represent the full range of alternatives that 
eventually will be evaluated by the Council.
