SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Coonamessett Farm Foundation has been awarded a research grant through the Commercial Fisheries Research Foundation titled, ‘‘Testing of a Low Profile Excluder Dredge for Winter Flounder Bycatch Reduction.’’ The primary objective of this testing is to begin to develop dredge modifications to reduce winter flounder bycatch in the Atlantic sea scallop fishery. A single vessel would conduct ten to twenty 60– minute tows at 4.5 knots with an experimental low profile excluder dredge over a three-day period. Coonamessett Farm would deploy dredge-mounted video cameras to document the interactions between the dredge and any encountered species. Collection of this video data is the only objective of these research tows and no species will be retained or landed. The vessel is expected to catch a minimal amount of scallops (100 lb), winter flounder (100 lb), yellowtail flounder (20 lb), monkfish (50 lb), and little skate (100 lb). All fish would be returned to the sea as quickly as possible to minimize discard mortality. The tows will be conducted in late June or early July 2010, between Montauk Point and Martha’s Vineyard at a depth of 30 to 60 m, depending on concentrations of winter flounder. Coonamessett Farm submitted a complete EFP application on May 14, 2010, requesting exemption allowing one commercial fishing vessel to fish outside of the limited access Atlantic sea scallop DAS regulations found at 50 VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:17 Jun 17, 2010 Jkt 220001 CFR 648.53(b). Any fishing activity conducted outside the scope of the exempted fishing activity would be prohibited. Authority: 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq. Dated: June 15, 2010. James P.

SUMMARY: In response to requests from interested parties, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on pure magnesium from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’), covering the period May 1, 2008, through April 30, 2009. We have preliminarily determined that the respondent in this administrative review has made sales in the United States at prices below normal value during the period of review (‘‘POR’’). We have also preliminarily determined that two companies for which a review was requested have not been responsive and, thus, have not demonstrated entitlement to a separate rate. As a result, we have preliminarily determined that they are part of the PRC–Wide Entity and have assigned them the PRC–Wide Entity rate. If these preliminary results are adopted in the final results of review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. We invite interested parties to comment on these preliminary results. Parties who submit comments are requested to submit with each argument a summary of the argument. We intend to issue the final results no later than E:\FR\FM\18JNN1.SGM 18JNN1
