ACTION: Notice of cancellation of Federal moratorium. AGENCY: NMFS announces the cancellation of the Federal moratorium on fishing for Atlantic coastal sharks in the State waters of New Jersey. NMFS canceled the moratorium, as required by the Atlantic Coastal Fisheries Cooperative Management Act (Atlantic Coastal Act), based on the determination that New Jersey is now in compliance with the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission’s (Commission) Interstate Fishery Management Plan for Atlantic Coastal Sharks (Coastal Shark Plan). SUMMARY: Effective July 30, 2010. ADDRESSES: Emily Menashes, Acting Director, Office of Sustainable Fisheries, NMFS, 1315 East-West Highway, Room 13362, Silver Spring, MD 20910. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Brian Hooker, Fishery Management Specialist, NMFS Office of Sustainable Fisheries, (301) 713–2334. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES Background On February 4, 2010, the Commission found that the State of New Jersey was out of compliance with the Commission’s Coastal Shark Plan. Specifically, the Commission found that New Jersey had not implemented regulations that are necessary to rebuild depleted shark stocks, ensure sustainable harvest of others, and provide protection for sharks in nursing and pupping grounds found within State waters. The Commission forwarded the findings of their vote on February 4, 2010, in a formal noncompliance referral letter that was received by NMFS on February 8, 2010. On March 16, 2010, NMFS notified the State of New Jersey and the Commission of its determination that New Jersey failed to carry out its responsibilities under the Commission’s Coastal Shark Plan and that the measures New Jersey has failed to implement and enforce are necessary for the conservation of the shark resource. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:29 Jul 29, 2010 Jkt 220001 In this determination and notification, NMFS detailed the actions necessary to avoid the implementation of a Federal moratorium for sharks in New Jersey waters. Details of this determination were provided in a Federal Register notice published on April 27, 2010 (75 FR 22103), and are not repeated here. Activities Pursuant to the Atlantic Coastal Act The Atlantic Coastal Act specifies that, if, after a moratorium is declared with respect to a State, the Secretary is notified by the Commission that it is withdrawing the determination of noncompliance, the Secretary shall immediately determine whether the State is in compliance with the applicable plan. If the State is determined to be in compliance, the moratorium shall be terminated. On July 20,2010, NMFS received a letter from the Commission that New Jersey has taken corrective action to comply with the Coastal Shark Plan, and that the Commission has withdrawn its determination of noncompliance. Cancellation of the Moratorium Based on the Commission’s July 20, 2010, letter, information received from the State of New Jersey, and NMFS review of New Jersey’s revised coastal shark regulations, NMFS concurs with the Commission’s determination that New Jersey is now in compliance with the Coastal Shark Plan. Therefore, the moratorium on fishing for, possession of, and landing of Atlantic coastal sharks by the recreational and commercial fishermen within New Jersey waters is canceled. NMFS, however, wishes to remind the public that although the Federal noncompliance moratorium is withdrawn, other State and Federal coastal shark regulations continue to remain in effect, including regulations that prohibit the landing of some shark species. NMFS urges the shark fishing public to be knowledgeable of all shark fishing regulations before engaging in the fishery. Authority: 16 U.S.C. 5101 et seq. Dated: July 26, 2010. Eric C. Schwaab, Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, National Marine Fisheries Service.

VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:29 Jul 29, 2010 Jkt 220001 The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results within this time limit. The Department is extending the deadline because it needs more time to analyze the supplemental responses of the new mandatory respondent. In addition, parties have submitted voluminous surrogate country comments and surrogate value data, and thus will require additional time to analyze these data. Thus, the Department requires additional time to address these circumstances in these reviews. We are, therefore, extending the time for the completion of the preliminary results of these reviews by 30 days, from the date of the presently tolled due date of August 8, 2010, for the preliminary results, to September 7, 2010.

February 12, 2010, the Department tolled administrative deadlines, 
including in the instant review, by one calendar week. See Tolling of 
Administrative Deadlines As a Result of the Government Closure During 
the Recent Snowstorm, dated February 12, 2010 (``Tolling Memo''). On 
March 9, 2010, the Department aligned the 6th new shipper review with 
the 6th administrative review. See Memorandum to the File, from Javier

dated March 9, 2010. On April 2, 2010, the Department received 
surrogate country comments. Between April 2, 2010, and July 9, 2010, 
the Department received surrogate value data and surrogate rebuttal 
comments from interested parties. On April 22, 2010, the Department 
extended the deadline for the preliminary results in the instant 
review. See Certain Frozen Fish Fillets from the Socialist Republic of 
Vietnam: Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of the 6th 
Antidumping Duty Administrative and 6th New Shipper Reviews, 75 FR 
20983 (April 22, 2010). The preliminary results are currently due on 
August 8, 2010 (inclusive of the seven day extension per the Tolling 
Memo).

Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(``Act''), and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1) require the Department to issue the 
preliminary results in an administrative review of an antidumping duty 
order 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the order 
for which the administrative review was requested. The Department may, 
however, extend the deadline for completion of the preliminary results 
of an administrative review to 365 days if it determines it is not 
practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period. 
See section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).
    The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the 
preliminary results within this time limit. The Department is extending 
the deadline because it needs more time to analyze the supplemental 
responses of the new mandatory respondent. In addition, parties have 
submitted voluminous surrogate country comments and surrogate value 
data, and thus will require additional time to analyze these data. 
Thus, the Department requires additional time to address these 
circumstances in these reviews. We are, therefore, extending the time 
for the completion of the preliminary results of these reviews by 30 
days, from the date of the presently tolled due date of August 8, 2010, 
for the preliminary results, to September 7, 2010.
    This notice is published in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of 
the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).
