AGENCY: Kate Johnson or Rebecca Trainor, AD/CVD Operations, Office 2, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–4929 or (202) 482– 4007, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Background On February 1, 2011, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published in the Federal Register a notice of ‘‘Opportunity to Request Administrative Review’’ of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Brazil for the period of review (POR) of February 1, 2010, through January 31, 2011. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 76 FR 5559 (February 1, 2011). The Department received a timely request from the Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Committee (Domestic Producers) in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), for an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Brazil. On April 1, 2011, the Department published a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Brazil with respect to seven companies. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Brazil, India and Thailand: Notice of Initiation of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews, 76 FR 18157 (April 1, 2011) (Initiation Notice). The Department stated in its initiation of this review that it intended to rely on U.S. Customs and Border Protection VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:24 Jun 29, 2011 Jkt 223001 (CBP) data to select respondents. See Initiation Notice. However, our review of the CBP database, with respect to the companies for which reviews were requested, showed no entries of certain frozen warmwater shrimp originating in Brazil, subject to AD/CVD duties, during the POR. See April 1, 2011, Memorandum to the File from Kate Johnson entitled ‘‘Release of POR Entry Data from CBP,’’ as revised on April 11, 2011. We released the results of our CBP data query to the Domestic Producers and invited them to comment on the CBP data and respondent selection, which they did on April 6, 2011. On April 12, 2011, we conducted another query of the CBP database which showed no entries of subject merchandise subject to AD/CVD duties from companies other than those for which reviews were requested. On May 24, 2011, we sent a ‘‘No Shipments Inquiry’’ to CBP to confirm that there were no shipments or entries of frozen warmwater shrimp from Brazil during the POR. We received no information from CBP to contradict the results of our data query that there were no shipments or entries of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. On June 10, 2011, we addressed the Domestic Producers’ April 6, 2011, comments in a Memorandum to James Maeder, Director, Office 2, AD/CVD Operations from Kate Johnson and Rebecca Trainor, Senior Case Analysts, Office 2, AD/CVD Operations, entitled ‘‘Intent to Rescind Administrative Review’’ and invited parties to comment on our intent to rescind this administrative review. We did not receive comments from any interested party. Rescission of Review Section 351.213(d)(3) of the Department’s regulations stipulates that the Secretary may rescind an administrative review if there were no entries, exports, or sales of the subject merchandise during the POR. As there were no entries, exports, or sales of the subject merchandise during the POR, we are rescinding this review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Brazil pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3). We intend to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of this notice of rescission of administrative review. This notice is published in accordance with section 751 of the PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4). Dated: June 24, 2011.

ACTION: Notice; issuance of permit. AGENCY: Notice is hereby given that a permit has been issued to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife Resources Division [Responsible Party: Dan Forster], to conduct research on North Atlantic right whales (Eubalaena glacialis). ADDRESSES: The permit and related documents are available for review upon written request or by appointment in the following offices: Permits, Conservation and Education Division, Office of Protected Resources, NMFS, 1315 East-West Highway, Room 13705, Silver Spring, MD 20910; phone (301) 427–8401; fax (301) 713–0376; and Southeast Region, NMFS, 263 13th Avenue South, Saint Petersburg, Florida 33701; phone (727) 824–5312; fax (727) 824–5309. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kristy Beard or Carrie Hubard, (301) 427–8401. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On December 3, 2010, notice was published in the Federal Register (75 FR 75458) that a request for a permit to conduct research on North Atlantic right whales had been submitted by the applicant. The requested permit has been issued under the authority of the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq.), the regulations governing the taking and importing of marine mammals (50 CFR part 216), the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), and the regulations governing the taking, importing, and exporting of endangered and threatened species (50 CFR parts 222–226). The permit authorizes harassment of North Atlantic right whales off the coast of Georgia, Florida, and South Carolina. SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 38361 Annual activities include aerial surveys and close approach by vessel to collect right whale photo-identification and behavioral data from up to 350 whales. An additional 50 adult or juvenile whales and 20 whales older than one month would be approached by vessel to collect photo-identification and behavioral data and skin/blubber biopsy samples. The purpose of the research is to monitor North Atlantic right whale population status, demographics, habitat and anthropogenic impacts. Up to 350 bottlenose (Tursiops truncatus) and 200 Atlantic spotted dolphins (Stenella frontalis) would be harassed incidental to research. The permit is valid for five years. An environmental assessment (EA) was prepared analyzing the effects of the permitted activities on the human environment in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.). Based on the analyses in the EA, NMFS determined that issuance of the permit would not significantly impact the quality of the human environment and that preparation of an environmental impact statement was not required. That determination is documented in a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI), signed on June 23, 2011. As required by the ESA, issuance of this permit was based on a finding that such permit: (1) Was applied for in good faith; (2) will not operate to the disadvantage of such endangered species; and (3) is consistent with the purposes and policies set forth in section 2 of the ESA. Dated: June 24, 2011. P. Michael Payne, Chief, Permits, Conservation and Education Division, Office of Protected Resources, National Marine Fisheries Service.
