These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Department’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: September 10, 2012. Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    This request is for a new information collection.
    Quota allocations to groups of self-selecting permit holders (known 
as sector allocations) are increasingly being considered as a way to 
provide fishermen with greater control and flexibility in their fishing 
businesses while achieving efficiency gains. This new approach, which 
devolves substantial management responsibilities to groups of 
fishermen, represents a potential transformation in the relationship 
among permit holders as well as the relationship between permit holders 
and fisheries governance structures.
    The NOAA National Marine Fisheries Service, Northeast Region expect 
that the success of sectors is likely to be shaped by the strength of 
the relationships between permit holders including their degree of 
trust and collaboration. We also expect that successful sectors will 
build norms and networks that enable collective action over time. The 
value of these relationships is commonly referred to in social and 
economic literature as social capital.
    A baseline of existing social capital in the groundfish fishery in 
the Northeast Region was conducted in 2010 by the Gulf of Maine 
Research Institute. This survey, to be conducted twice over the next 
six years, will follow up on this earlier initiative and will enable 
researchers to measure the change in the types and strength of 
relationships between groundfish permit holders in the Northeast. This 
work will inform our understanding of how best to design collaborative 
management structures in support of sustainable fisheries in the region 
and nationally.

II. Method of Collection

    Information will be collected via telephone interviews.

IV. Request for Comments

    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of
