The issues that parties raised, and to which we responded in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, follow as an appendix to this notice. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have made no adjustments to the margin calculations for Nava. Final Results of Review The final weighted-average dumping margin for the period May 1, 2013, through April 30, 2014, is as follows: Manufacturer/Exporter WeightedAverage margin (percent) Nava Bharat Ventures Limited ... 0.00 Lhorne on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Assessment Rates The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Nava’s weighted-average dumping margin in these final results is zero percent. Therefore, we will instruct CBP to liquidate all appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. The Department intends to issue the appropriate assessment instructions for Nava to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results. Cash Deposit Requirements The following deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of silicomanganese from India entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the final results of this administrative review, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Nava will be VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:11 Dec 02, 2015 Jkt 238001 the weighted-average dumping margin listed above; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not listed above, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the lessthan-fair-value investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and, (4) if neither the exporter nor the manufacturer is a firm covered in this or any previous review, the cash deposit rate will be the all others rate for this proceeding, 17.74 percent, as established in the less-thanfair-value investigation.3 These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

The current proposal is to collect a second round of baseline data collection postprogram design using a slightly modified survey instrument (e.g., dropping questions that were unclear, removing elements not under consideration by the North Pacific Fishery Management Council, and clarifying the wording of the remaining questions). The data collected will be used in conjunction with the 2014 survey data to provide a description of the changes that have occurred in the industry as the program has been developed as well as allow for an analysis of the changes experienced by individuals and communities after the rationalization program has been implemented.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

[[Page 75662]]

I. Abstract

    This request is for a revision to an existing information 
collection using a slightly modified survey instrument by removing 
questions that were unclear or not consistently interpreted by 
respondents, or are irrelevant after more information about the program 
design have been developed by the North Pacific Fishery Management 
Council, and clarifying the wording of remaining questions.
    Historically, changes in fisheries management regulations have been 
shown to result in impacts to individuals within the fishery. An 
understanding of social impacts in fisheries--achieved through the 
collection of data on fishing communities, as well as on individuals 
who fish--is a requirement under several federal laws. Laws such as the 
National Environmental Policy Act and the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery 
Conservation and Management Act (as amended 2007) describe such 
requirements. The collection of this data not only helps to inform 
legal requirements for the existing management actions, but will inform 
future management actions requiring equivalent information.
    Fisheries rationalization programs have an impact on those 
individuals participating in the affected fishery, as well as their 
communities and may also have indirect effects on other fishery 
participants. The North Pacific Fishery Management Council is 
considering the implementation of a new rationalization program for the 
Gulf of Alaska trawl fishery. This research aims to study the affected 
individuals both prior to and after the design and implementation of 
the rationalization program. One year of pre-program design data from 
this survey was collected in 2014. The current proposal is to collect a 
second round of baseline data collection post-program design using a 
slightly modified survey instrument (e.g., dropping questions that were 
unclear, removing elements not under consideration by the North Pacific 
Fishery Management Council, and clarifying the wording of the remaining 
questions).
    The data collected will be used in conjunction with the 2014 survey 
data to provide a description of the changes that have occurred in the 
industry as the program has been developed as well as allow for an 
analysis of the changes experienced by individuals and communities 
after the rationalization program has been implemented. The measurement 
of these changes will lead to a greater understanding of the social 
impacts the program may have on the individuals and communities 
affected by fisheries regulations. To achieve these goals, it is 
critical to collect the necessary data after program design and prior 
to the implementation of the rationalization program to understand what 
changes in the industry were made prior to implementation in 
expectation of future changes in management. This second baseline will 
also allow for the comparison of data collected after the management 
program has been implemented to understand how rationalization programs 
impact individuals and communities throughout the design and 
implementation of the program.

II. Method of Collection

    Literature reviews, secondary sources including Internet sources, 
United States Census data, key informants, focus groups, paper surveys, 
electronic surveys, and in-person interviews will be utilized in 
combination to obtain the greatest breadth of information as possible.
