SUMMARY: On March 24, 2014, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Thailand.1 The period of review (POR) is February 1, 2012, through January 31, 2013. Based on our analysis of the comments received, we made certain changes in the margin calculations. Therefore, the final results differ from the preliminary results. For the final results, we continue to find that all companies involved in this review sold subject merchandise at less than normal value. Finally, we find that 12 companies had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. DATES: Effective Date: August 28, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background This review covers 159 producers/ exporters. The respondents which the Department selected for individual examination are Thai Union Frozen Products Public Co., Ltd. and Thai Union Seafood Co., Ltd. (collectively, Thai Union) and the Pakfood Group.2 On July 26, 2013, we collapsed Thai Union and Pakfood into a single entity, hereinafter referred to as ‘‘Thai Union/ Pakfood’’).3 The respondents which were not selected for individual examination are listed in the ‘‘Final Results of the Review’’ section of this notice. On March 24, 2014, the Department published the Preliminary Results. On March 25, 2014, we issued a memorandum stating our intention to rescind the review for two companies that the Department found not to be producers or exporters of subject merchandise, as defined in 19 CFR 351.213(b) and 351.102(b)(29)(i).4 In May 2014, we received case briefs from the American Shrimp Processors Association and Thai Union/Pakfood, and we received rebuttal briefs from the above-mentioned interested parties and the the Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Committee. Also on May 15, 2014, the Department held a public hearing at the request of the respondents. Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the order is certain frozen warmwater shrimp.5 The product is currently classified 2 The Pakfood Group includes the following companies: Pakfood Public Company Limited, Okeanos Co. Ltd., Okeanos Food Co., Ltd., Asia Pacific (Thailand) Co., Ltd., Chaophraya Cold Storage Co. Ltd., and Takzin Samut Co. Ltd. (collectively, Pakfood). 3 In this review, the Department determined to treat the Pakfood Group as a collapsed entity with Thai Union, effective as of April 23, 2012. See Preliminary Results. 4 See memorandum from Dennis McClure, Senior Analyst, Office II, to James Maeder, Director, Office II, entitled ‘‘Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Thailand: Preliminary Intent to Rescind Review for GSE Lining Technology Co., Ltd. and Recission of Review for Kosamut Frozen Foods Co., Ltd.,’’ dated March 25, 2014. 5 For a complete description of the Scope of the Order, see the memorandum from Gary Taverman, Senior Advisor for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, to Ronald K. Lorentzen, Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, entitled, ‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Thailand,’’ (dated concurrently with these results) (Issues and Decision Memo), which is hereby adopted by this notice.

Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case briefs by parties are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memo. A list of the issues which parties raised and to which we respond in the Issues and Decision Memo is attached to this notice as Appendix I. The Issues and Decision Memo is a public document and is on file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (IA ACCESS). IA ACCESS is available to registered users at http://iaaccess.trade.gov and in the Central Records Unit, room 7046 of the main Department of Commerce building. In addition, a complete version of the Issues and Decision Memo can be accessed directly on the Internet at http://www.trade.gov/ia/. The signed and electronic versions of the Issues and Decision Memo are identical in content. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on comments received from interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we made one change to Thai Union/Pakfood’s margin calculations. Period of Review The POR is February 1, 2012, through January 31, 2013. Determination of No Shipments As noted in the Preliminary Results, we received properly-filed no shipment claims from 13 companies named in the Initiation Notice.6 However, as noted in the ‘‘Rescission in Part’’ section of this notice, below, we subsequently determined that one of these companies is not an exporter or producer of shrimp and thus we are rescinding the review with regard to this company. Regarding the remaining 12 companies, we confirmed the claims of these companies with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). We received no comments from interested parties with 6 See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From India and Thailand: Notice of Initiation of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews, 78 FR 19639 (April 2, 2013) (Initiation Notice).
