Authority Scientific research permits are issued in accordance with section 10(a)(1)(A) of the ESA (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) and regulations governing listed fish and wildlife permits (50 CFR 222–226). NMFS issues permits based on findings that such permits: (1) are applied for in good faith; (2) if granted and exercised, would not operate to the disadvantage of the listed species that are the subject of the permit; and (3) are consistent with the purposes and policy of section 2 of the ESA. The authority to take listed species is subject to conditions set forth in the permits. Anyone requesting a hearing on an application listed in this notice should set out the specific reasons why a hearing on that application would be appropriate (see ADDRESSES). Such hearings are held at the discretion of the Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, NMFS. Applications Received wwoods2 on DSK1DXX6B1PROD with NOTICES_PART 1 Permit 15205 The Center for the Historical Ecology of the Salish Sea (KWIAHT) is seeking a five-year permit to take juvenile PS Chinook salmon while conducting research in the San Juan Islands of Washington state. The research is designed to help assess juvenile habitat use in the San Juan Islands. The researchers would collect information on patterns of prey use, contaminant accumulation, and Chinook stock structure in the study area. The research would benefit the listed species by helping direct habitat protection (especially those habitats linked to prey abundance and bioaccumulation of toxicants). The KWIAHT would capture fish (using beach seines); measure them; check them for marks, tags, and parasites; collect stomach contents and fin tissue samples; and release them. The researchers do not intend to kill any of the fish being captured but a small number may die as an unintended result of the research activities. Permit 15230 Forest and Channel Metrics, Inc., (FCM) is seeking a five-year permit to take juvenile PS Chinook salmon and PS steelhead while conducting research in the Tolt River basin a tributary to the Snoqualmie River in northwest Washington State. The research is part VerDate Mar<15>2010 13:41 Apr 29, 2010 Jkt 220001 of the Seattle City Light Department’s effort to enhance salmonid habitat in the basin and the department would cooperate in the sampling. The researchers would collect information on juvenile salmonid status and distribution at the river-reach scale during different seasons of the year. The research would benefit listed species by helping direct habitat mitigation and enhancement efforts. The FCM researchers would capture fish (using boat electrofishing, backpack electrofishing, and seine nets); collect weights, lengths, and scale samples; and release them. A portion of the PS steelhead would be tagged with passive integrated transponders (PIT-tags). The researchers do not intend to kill any of the fish being captured but a small number may die as an unintended result of the research activities. Permit 15235 The Oregon State University Department of Fish and Wildlife (OSU) is requesting a five-year scientific research to take juvenile Oregon Coast coho salmon. The purpose of the project is to study the effects of dam removal on aquatic and riparian habitats and on the abundance and diversity of vertebrates, invertebrates, and macrophytes. The OSU researchers would assess ecosystem conditions above and below Gold Ray Dam before and after dam removal. They would also assess ecosystem conditions at randomly selected sites throughout the main stem of the Rogue River. The information gathered by this research would benefit listed salmonids by helping resource managers evaluate how dam removal affects aquatic species. The applicant proposes to use boat electrofishing equipment to capture fish in the Rogue River from river-mile 5 up to Lost Creek Dam. Listed fish would be enumerated, measured, evaluated for health conditions, and released. The applicant does not intend to kill any listed fish species, but a small number may die as an unintended result of the activities. This notice is provided pursuant to section 10(c) of the ESA. NMFS will evaluate the applications, associated documents, and comments submitted to determine whether the applications meet the requirements of section 10(a) of the ESA and Federal regulations. The final permit decisions will not be made until after the end of the 30–day comment period. NMFS will publish notice of its final action in the Federal Register.

The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this administrative review within the time period set forth in the Initiation, as tolled. Specifically, we determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this administrative review within the original time limit because the respondent selection process was complicated due to the conflicting comments submitted by interesting parties, and the Department requires additional time to analyze questionnaire responses, issue supplemental questionnaires, and evaluate surrogate value submissions for purposes of the preliminary results. Because the current deadline does not afford the Department adequate time to gather, analyze, request supplementary information, and review surrogate value information, the Department requires more time to complete the preliminary results. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results within the original time period and is extending the time limit for issuing the preliminary results by 120 days until November 8, 2010.1 The final results continue to be due 120 days after DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE 1 One hundred and twenty days from July 10, 2010, is November 7, 2010, which is a Sunday.

Background

    On November 25, 2009, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
initiated the first administrative review of the antidumping duty order 
on steel wire garment hangers from the People's Republic of China 
(``PRC''), covering the period March 25, 2008, through September 30, 
2009. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty

Administrative Review of Steel Wire Garment Hangers from the People's 
Republic of China: Selection of Respondents for Individual Review,'' 
dated February 12, 2010. Between March 2010 and April 2010, the 
selected respondents submitted responses to the Department's 
antidumping duty questionnaire, dated February 12, 2010.

Extension of Time Limit for the Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to issue the 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. If it is 
not practicable to complete the review within the time period, section 
751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend this deadline 
to 365 days.
    The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the 
preliminary results of this administrative review within the time 
period set forth in the Initiation, as tolled. Specifically, we 
determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary 
results of this administrative review within the original time limit 
because the respondent selection process was complicated due to the 
conflicting comments submitted by interesting parties, and the 
Department requires additional time to analyze questionnaire responses, 
issue supplemental questionnaires, and evaluate surrogate value 
submissions for purposes of the preliminary results.
    Because the current deadline does not afford the Department 
adequate time to gather, analyze, request supplementary information, 
and review surrogate value information, the Department requires more 
time to complete the preliminary results. Therefore, in accordance with 
section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department finds that it is not 
practicable to complete the preliminary results within the original 
time period and is extending the time limit for issuing the preliminary 
results by 120 days until November 8, 2010.\1\ The final results 
continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the preliminary 
results.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ One hundred and twenty days from July 10, 2010, is November 
7, 2010, which is a Sunday. However, Department practice dictates 
that where a deadline falls on a weekend, the appropriate deadline 
is the next business day. 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
