Download as PDF 1752 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 8 / Wednesday, January 13, 2010 / Notices preliminary results of an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within these time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the 245 day time period for the preliminary results up to 365 days.

Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limits for completion of the preliminary results of this administrative review until no later than May 31, 2010, which is 365 days from the last day of the anniversary month of these orders. We intend to issue the final results in this review no later than 120 days after publication of the preliminary results. This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: January 7, 2010. John M.

ACTION: Notice of SEDAR Review Workshop for Atlantic croaker and Atlantic menhaden. SUMMARY: The SEDAR assessment review of the Atlantic stocks of croaker and menhaden will be conducted at a Review Workshop. This is the twentieth SEDAR. See SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION. ADDRESSES: The Review Workshop will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn, 5265 International Boulevard, North Charleston, SC 29418; (800) 782–9444 or (843) 308–9330.

The Gulf of Mexico, South Atlantic, and Caribbean Fishery Management Councils, in conjunction with NOAA Fisheries and the Atlantic and Gulf States Marine Fisheries Commissions have implemented the Southeast Data, Assessment and Review (SEDAR) process, a multi-step method for determining the status of fish stocks in the Southeast Region. The SEDAR 20 Review Workshop will be an independent peer review of the products from assessments of Atlantic stocks of croaker and menhaden conducted by the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC). Products to be reviewed are reports from the ASMFC Data Workshop and ASMFC Stock Assessment Workshop for each stock. The Data Workshop Reports compile and evaluate potential datasets and recommend which datasets are appropriate for assessment analyses. The Stock Assessment Workshop Reports describe the fisheries, evaluate the status of the stock, estimate biological benchmarks, project future population conditions, and recommend research and monitoring needs. The product of the Review Workshop is a Peer Review Evaluation Report documenting Panel opinions regarding the strengths and weaknesses of the stock assessment and input data. Participants for the SEDAR 20 Review Workshop are appointed by the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commissions, NOAA Fisheries Southeast Fisheries Science Center, and the NOAA Center for Independent Experts. Review Workshop participants may include data collectors and database managers; stock assessment scientists, biologists, and researchers; constituency representatives including fishermen, environmentalists, and NGO’s; international experts; and staff of Councils, Commissions, and state and federal agencies. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: The Review Workshop will take place March 8–12, 2010. See SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION for specific dates and times.
