Abstract Under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary) has the responsibility for the conservation and management of marine fishery resources. Much of this responsibility has been delegated to the NOAA’s National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS). Under this stewardship role, the Secretary was given certain regulatory authorities to ensure the most beneficial uses of these resources. One of the regulatory steps taken to carry out the conservation and management objectives is to collect data from users of the resource. Thus, as regional Fishery Management Councils develop specific Fishery Management Plans (FMP), the Secretary has promulgated rules for the issuance and use of a Vessel Monitoring System (VMS) and to obtain fishery-dependent data to monitor, evaluate, and enforce fishery regulations. Framework Adjustment 1 (FW1) to the Atlantic Surf Clam and Ocean Quahog FMP contains a VMS requirement for surfclam and ocean quahog vessels participating in the individual transferable quota program and limited access Maine mahogany quahog vessels. VMS was identified as a need in this fishery to (1) Eliminate the requirement to notify NMFS Office of Law Enforcement (OLE) via telephone prior to beginning a fishing trip, (2) facilitate the monitoring of areas closed to fishing due to environmental degradation (e.g., harmful algal blooms and former dump sites for military munitions), and (3) facilitate the monitoring of borders between state and Federal fishing jurisdictions.

As explained below, in accordance with the order contained in the CIT’s November 18, 2008 judgement, Shanghai Eswell II, the Department is amending the Final Results of the review to apply the recalculated surrogate financial ratios in the Department’s normal value calculation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On July 6, 2005, the Department completed its Final Results of the second administrative review of honey from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). On September 13, 2007, the CIT remanded the following issues to the Department for further explanation consistent with its opinion and Order: (1) The surrogate value for raw honey and the evidence indicating a decline in honey prices; (2) the denial of a circumstance of sale adjustment for sales commissions; (3) the failure to include MHPC’s expenses for jars, corks and honey machines in the financial ratio calculation; and (4) the finding Jinfu PRC was unaffiliated with Jinfu USA. See Shanghai Eswell Enterprise, Co., Ltd., et al. v. United States, 31 C.I.T. 1570, (Ct. Int’l Trade 2007). Pursuant to the CIT’s remand instructions, the Department: (1) Addressed record evidence which indicated a decline in export prices during the second half of the POR and explained why we have refrained from considering these data in calculating a surrogate value for raw honey; (2) explained that there was insufficient evidence of an exact correlation between respondents’ and the surrogate producer’s expenses and continued to deny circumstances of sale adjustment for sales commissions; (3) revised our financial ratio calculations to include reported expenses for jars and corks as direct materials used for PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 producing finished honey and provided further explanation regarding our finding that honey machine purchases do not constitute direct expenses; and (4) examined the record evidence and continued to find that Jinfu PRC and Jinfu USA were not affiliated prior to October 25, 2003, because Jinfu PRC’s CEO did not exercise control over Jinfu USA prior to this date. On February 11, 2008, the Department filed its final results of redetermination pursuant to Eswell I with the CIT. See Final Results of Redetermination Pursuant to Court Remand: Shanghai Eswell Enterprise Co., Ltd. v. United States, Court No. 06–00430 (February 11, 2008) (‘‘Eswell I’’). As noted above, both the CIT and the Federal Circuit affirmed the agency’s remand determination. See Shanghai Eswell II, Shanghai Eswell III. Because the Department, in its remand determination, revised its financial ratio calculations to include expenses for jars and corks as direct materials used to produce finished honey, we must revise the surrogate financial ratios and margin calculations for Eswell Enterprise Co., Ltd., Jinfu and Zhejiang Native Produce and Animal By-Products Import & Export Group Corp. Amendment to the Final Determination Because there is now a final and conclusive court decision, effective as of the publication date of this notice, we are amending the Final Results and revising the weighted average dumping margins for the following companies: HONEY FROM THE PRC Manufacturer/exporter Shanghai Eswell Enterprise Co., Ltd ........................................... Jinfu Trading Co., Ltd ................. Zhejiang Native Produce and Animal By-Products Import & Export Group Corp .................. Weightedaverage margin (percent) 27.64 58.44 34.81 We have calculated: (1) Shanghai Eswell Enterprise Co., Ltd.’s (‘‘Shanghai Eswell’’) company-specific antidumping margin as 27.64 percent; (2) Jinfu Trading Co., Ltd.’s (‘‘Jinfu Trading’’) company-specific antidumping margin as 58.44 percent; and (3) Zhejiang Native Produce and Animal By-Products Import & Export Group Corp.’s (‘‘Zhejiang Native’’) company-specific antidumping margin as 34.81 percent.
