Background

    The Commission instituted these investigations effective December 
28, 2012, following receipt of a petition filed with the Commission and 
Commerce by the Coalition of Gulf Shrimp Industries, Biloxi, MS. The 
final phase of the investigations was scheduled by the Commission 
following notification of preliminary determinations by Commerce that 
imports of frozen warmwater shrimp from countries under investigation 
were being subsidized within the meaning of section 703(b) of the Act 
(19 U.S.C. 1671b(b)).\3\ Notice of the scheduling of the final phase of 
the Commission's investigations and of a public hearing to be held in 
connection therewith was given by posting copies of the notice in the 
Office of the Secretary, U.S. International Trade Commission, 
Washington, DC, and by publishing the notice in the Federal Register of 
June 13, 2013 (78 FR 35643). The hearing was held in Washington, DC, on 
August 13, 2013, and all persons who requested the opportunity were 
permitted to appear in person or by counsel.

    \3\ In its preliminary determinations, Commerce found that 
imports of frozen warmwater shrimp from Ecuador and Indonesia were 
not being and not likely to be subsidized by the Governments of 
Ecuador or Indonesia (78 FR 33342-33351, June 4, 2013). However, in 
its final determinations, Commerce found imports of frozen warmwater 
shrimp from Ecuador were being subsidized, but that imports of 
frozen warmwater shrimp from Thailand in addition to those from 
Indonesia were not being and not likely to be subsidized by the 
Governments of Indonesia and Thailand. Following final negative 
determinations by Commerce with respect to frozen warmwater shrimp 
from Indonesia and Thailand (78 FR 50379-50394, August 19, 2013), 
the Commission terminated investigation Nos. 701-TA-494 and 496 (78 
FR 54912, September 6, 2013).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Commission completed and filed its determinations in these 
investigations on October 21, 2013.\4\ The views of the Commission are

Warmwater Shrimp from China, Ecuador, India, Malaysia, and Vietnam: 
Investigation Nos. 701-TA-491-493, 495, and 497 (Final).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ Due to the lapse in appropriations and ensuing cessation of 
Commission operations, all import injury investigations conducted 
under authority of Title VII of the Tariff Act of 1930 have been 
tolled by 16 days.
