The request should set forth the jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: 18:52 Sep 24, 2009 FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Tammy Adams or Amy Sloan, (301)713–2289. The subject amendment is requested under the authority of the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq.), and the regulations governing the taking and importing of marine mammals (50 CFR part 216). Permit No. 358–1787, issued on March 10, 2006 (71 FR 14503; March 22, 2006), authorizes the permit holder to conduct surveys of, capture of, tissue sampling of, and attachment of tags and scientific instruments to harbor seals (Phoca vitulina), spotted seals (P. largha), ringed seals (P. hispida), ribbon seals (P. fasciata), and bearded seals (Erignathus barbatus) in Alaska. The purpose of the permitted research is to allow studies to describe the ecology and behavior of these pinnipeds in Alaska. The permit was modified on June 12, 2006, by minor amendment (Permit No. 358–1787–01) to extend the expiration date to December 31, 2011, and adjust the annual reporting period to accommodate the timing of field seasons. A second minor amendment (Permit No. 358–1787–02) was issued on April 4, 2008, to include within the existing allowance for incidental harassment ‘‘planned vessel approaches’’ of harbor seals that have been instrumented with heart-rate monitors and time-depth recorders. That minor amendment did not result in takes of more harbor seals than were already permitted; and the objective was to examine the potential effects of vessel traffic on the metabolic rate and energetic budgets of harbor seals. The permit holder now requests to increase the number of ringed, bearded, spotted, and ribbon seals that may be captured, from 50 per year to 100 per year, to allow for selection of animals of specific age, sex, and molt condition. For these four species, the holder also requests to include permission to (1) administer diazepam as needed to sedate seals acting aggressively, (2) pull a whisker for stable isotope analyses of diet; and (3) include using a dip net from a boat as an additional capture method. The amendment would be valid for the duration of the permit, which expires on December 31, 2011. In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), an initial determination has been made that the activity proposed is categorically excluded from the requirement to SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE VerDate Nov<24>2008 specific reasons why a hearing on this application would be appropriate.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The antidumping duty order on certain frozen fish fillets from the 
Socialist Republic of Vietnam was published in the Federal Register on 
August 12, 2003. See Notice of Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Frozen 
Fish Fillets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, 68 FR 47909 
(August 12, 2003). On July 31, 2009, we received a timely request for a 
new shipper review from CUU Long Fish Joint Stock Company (``CL-Fish'') 
in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(c) and 351.214(d)(2). CL-Fish has 
certified that it is both the producer and exporter of the subject 
merchandise upon which the request for the new shipper review is based.

Initiation of New Shipper Reviews

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(I) of the Tariff Act of 1930, 
as amended (``Act''), and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2), CL-Fish certified that 
it did not export certain frozen fish fillets to the United States 
during the period of investigation (``POI''). Pursuant to section 
751(a)(2)(B)(i)(II) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(A), CL-
Fish certified that, since the initiation of the less-than-fair-value 
investigation, it has never been affiliated with any exporter or 
producer who exported certain frozen fish fillets to the United States 
during the POI, including those not individually examined during the 
less-than-fair-value investigation. As required by 19 CFR 
351.214(b)(2)(iii)(B), CL-Fish has also certified that its export 
activities are not controlled by the central government of Vietnam.
    In addition to the certifications described above, CL-Fish 
submitted documentation establishing the following: (1) the date on 
which it first shipped certain frozen fish fillets for export to the 
United States and the date on which the certain frozen fish fillets 
first entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption; (2) the 
volume of its first shipment; and (3) the date of its first sales to an 
unaffiliated customer in the United States.
    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.214(d)(1), we are initiating this new shipper review for shipments 
of certain frozen fish fillets from Vietnam produced and exported by 
CL-Fish.
    We intend to issue preliminary results of this review no later than 
180 days from the date of initiation, and final results of these 
reviews no later than 270 days from the date of initiation. See section 
751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act.
    We will instruct the United States Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') to allow, at the option of the importer, the posting, until 
the completion of the review, of a bond or security in lieu of a cash 
deposit for each entry of the subject merchandise from CL-Fish in 
accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.214(e). Because CL-Fish certified that it both produced and 
exported the subject merchandise, the sale of which is the basis for 
this new shipper review request, we will apply the bonding privilege to 
CL-Fish only for subject merchandise which the respondent both produced 
and exported.
    Interested parties requiring access to proprietary information in 
this new shipper review should submit applications for disclosure under 
administrative protective order in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305 and 
351.306. This initiation and notice are in accordance with section 
751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214 and 351.221(c)(1)(i).
