SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES Background On October 14, 2009, the Department of Commerce (the Department) initiated the countervailing duty investigation of certain sodium and potassium phosphate salts from the People’s Republic of China. See Certain Sodium and Potassium Phosphate Salts From the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigation, 74 FR 54778 (October 23, 2009). Currently, the preliminary determination is due no later than December 18, 2009. Postponement of Due Date for the Preliminary Determination Section 703(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to issue the preliminary determination in a countervailing duty investigation within 65 days after the date on which the Department initiated the investigation. However, the Department may postpone making the preliminary determination until no later than 130 days after the date on which the administering authority initiated the investigation if, among other reasons, the petitioner makes a timely request for an extension pursuant to section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act. In the instant investigation, the petitioners, ICL Performance Products LP and Prayon, Inc., made a timely request on November 20, 2009, requesting that the Department postpone the preliminary countervailing duty determination. See 19 CFR 351.205(e) and the petitioners’ November 20, 2009, letter requesting postponement of the preliminary determination. Therefore, pursuant to the discretion afforded the Department under VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:26 Dec 03, 2009 Jkt 220001 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act and because the Department does not find any compelling reason to deny the request, we are extending the due date for the preliminary determination to no later than 130 days after the date on which this investigation was initiated (i.e., to February 21, 2010). However, February 21, 2010 falls on a Sunday, and it is the Department’s long–standing practice to issue a determination the next business day when the statutory deadline falls on a weekend, federal holiday, or any other day when the Department is closed. See Notice of Clarification: Application of ‘‘Next Business Day’’ Rule for Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005). Accordingly, the deadline for the completion of the preliminary determination is now February 22, 2010, the first business day after the 130th day from initiation.

ACTION: Notice; request for comments. mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Assistant Regional Administrator for Sustainable Fisheries, Northeast Region, NMFS (Assistant Regional Administrator), has made a preliminary determination that an Exempted Fishing Permit (EFP) application contains all of the required information and warrants further consideration and has made a preliminary determination that the activities authorized under this EFP would be consistent with the goals and objectives of the Monkfish Fishery Management Plan (FMP). However, further review and consultation may be necessary before a final determination is made to issue an EFP. This EFP would grant exemptions from the Monkfish Day-at-Sea (DAS) Program, as well as VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:26 Dec 03, 2009 Jkt 220001 exempt vessels from the monkfish minimum size limits for onboard tagging purposes only. Regulations under the MagnusonStevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act require publication of this notification to provide interested parties the opportunity to comment on applications for proposed EFPs. DATES: Comments must be received on or before December 21, 2009. ADDRESSES: You may submit written comments by any of the following methods: • Email: NERO.EFP@noaa.gov. Include in the subject line ‘‘Comments on the GMRI Monkfish Tagging EFP.’’ • Mail: Patricia A. Kurkul, Regional Administrator, NMFS, NE Regional Office, 55 Great Republic Drive, Gloucester, MA 01930. Mark the outside of the envelope ‘‘Comments on the GMRI monkfish tagging EFP, DA9–229.’’ • Fax: (978) 281–9135. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Anna Macan, Fishery Management Specialist, 978–281–9165. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Gulf of Maine Research Institute (GMRI), in response to a NMFS notice published in the Federal Register on June 17, 2009 (50 CFR 28668), submitted a request to use 51 unallocated 2009 Monkfish Research Set-Aside (RSA) DAS as exempted DAS to conduct research activities associated with an ongoing study to investigate large-scale movements and habitat use of monkfish. These 51 exempted DAS would allow GRMI to resume research activities for a 2008 monkfish RSA project that had to be scaled back due to a budget shortfall resulting from the inability to use all of the 2008 monkfish RSA DAS allocated to the project. This EFP would allow up to 29 vessels to conduct tagging research in the Southern Fishery Management Area (SFMA) in conjunction with normal commercial fishing operations, using standard commercial gillnets. The goal of the project is to investigate large-scale movements of monkfish and to compare inferences about movement and habitat use from conventional and acrchival tags and otolith trace element analysis. Conventional tagging efforts would be conducted by trained captains or crew while under normal commercial fishing operations. Up to 25–50 monkfish per trip would be tagged, over the course of 51 fishing days. Data storage tags, up to 10 per trip, would only be deployed when GMRI staff is onboard. This EFP would exempt the participating vessels from the monkfish DAS requirements found at 50 CFR 648.92(b)(1)(i) for a total of 51 DAS. A PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 63723 DAS exemption would reduce the cost to participating vessels, by not requiring them to expend their DAS allocation to conduct the research. This EFP would also exempt participating vessels from the monkfish minimum size restrictions at § 648.93 for the purpose of tagging monkfish during research activities. No fish below the minimum size would be landed for sale. Aside from these exemptions, fishing activities would be conducted under normal commercial practices. The applicant may request minor modifications and extensions to the EFP throughout the year. EFP modifications and extensions may be granted without further notice if they are deemed essential to facilitate completion of the proposed research and have minimal impacts that do not change the scope or impact of the initially approved EFP request. Any fishing activity conducted outside the scope of the exempted fishing activity would be prohibited. Authority: 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq. Dated: December 1, 2009. Emily H. Menashes, Acting Director, Office of Sustainable Fisheries, National Marine Fisheries Service. [FR Doc.
