Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review For the reasons stated in the Preliminary Results, and because we received no comments from interested parties to the contrary, the Department continues to find that Srikanth is the successor-in-interest to NGR. As a result of this determination, we find that Srikanth should receive the cash deposit rate previously assigned to NGR in the VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:33 Aug 26, 2010 Jkt 220001 most recently completed review of the antidumping duty order on shrimp from India.

Consequently, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to suspend liquidation of all shipments of subject merchandise produced and exported by Srikanth and entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of this notice in the Federal Register at 2.67 percent, which is the current cash deposit rate for NGR. See, e.g., Final Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review: Certain Circular Welded Non-Alloy Steel Pipe and Tube From Mexico, 74 FR 41681, 41682 (Aug., 18, 2009). This cash deposit requirement shall remain in effect until further notice. We are issuing this determination and publishing these final results and notice in accordance with sections 751(b)(1) and 777(i)(1) and (2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.216 and 351.221(c)(3).
