The applicant is seeking a five-year scientific research permit to characterize habitat use, relative abundance, reproduction, juvenile recruitment, temporal and spatial distributions, and reproductive health of the shortnose sturgeon population in the Delaware River and Estuary. The proposed permit requests annual authorization for nonlethal sampling methods on up to 1,000 adult and juvenile shortnose sturgeon. Research activities would include: capturing via gill net, trammel net, and trawl net; measuring and weighing; tagging with PIT and Floy T-bar tags; and sampling tissue for genetic analysis. A subset of 30 adults and 30 juveniles would be tagged with acoustic transmitters. Another subset of 24 adults would be examined internally using laparoscopic techniques and each would also have gonad biopsy and blood samples taken for analyses. Additionally, lethal takes of up to 500 eggs and larvae each year would be collected during seasonal spawning activity by artificial substrate, D-frame ichthyoplankton net, and/or epibenthic sled. Finally, one unintentional mortality or serious injury is requested annually. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Dated: November 13, 2009. P.

EFFECTIVE DATE: November 19, 2009.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On August 31, 2009, the Department published the preliminary results of the new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on circular welded carbon steel pipes and tubes (pipes and tubes) from Thailand for the period March 1, 2008 through September 30, 2008. See Circular Welded Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes from Thailand: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review, 74 FR 44825 (August 31, 2009) (Preliminary Results). This review covers the respondent, Pacific Pipe Public Company, Limited (Pacific Pipe), a producer/exporter of the subject merchandise to the United States. Extension of Time Limit for Final Results The final results of this new shipper review are currently due on November 22, 2009. Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act) requires the Department to issue the final results of a new shipper review of an antidumping order within 90 days after the date the preliminary results are issued. However, if the review is extraordinarily complicated, the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the final results to a maximum of 150 days. See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2). In this new shipper review, the Department conducted verification after the publication of the Preliminary Results. The Department must now perform additional analysis on the complex information collected at verification. Thus, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2), the Department is E:\FR\FM\19NON1.SGM 19NON1
