Dated: February 1, 2016. Gary Taverman, Associate Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations. [FR Doc. 2016–02397 Filed 2–5–16; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3510–DS–P DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE In accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(k)(1)(i)–(iii), Catalyst and Irving each certified that they exported the subject merchandise to the United States during the period of investigation; that they were not affiliated with an exporter or producer that the Department individually examined in the investigation; and that they informed the Government of Canada, as the government of the exporting country, that the government will be required to provide a full response to the Department’s questionnaire. Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(k), we are initiating an expedited review of the countervailing duty order on supercalendered paper from Canada. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(i)(1) and (k)(3), we intend to issue the preliminary results of this expedited review not later than 180 days from the date of initiation of this review.4 As specified by 19 CFR 351.214(k)(3)(i), the period of review will be the same as the original period of investigation, i.e., January 1, 2014, through December 31, 2014. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(k)(3)(iii), the final results of this expedited review will not be the basis for the assessment of countervailing duties. Instead, this expedited review is intended to establish individual cash deposit rates for Catalyst and Irving, or to exclude from the countervailing duty order a company for which the final results of review are zero or de minimis, as provided in 19 CFR 351.214(k)(3)(iv).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Gulf of Mexico, South Atlantic, and Caribbean Fishery Management Councils, in conjunction with NOAA Fisheries and the Atlantic and Gulf States Marine Fisheries Commissions have implemented the Southeast Data, Assessment and Review (SEDAR) process, a multi-step method for determining the status of fish stocks in the Southeast Region. SEDAR is a three step process including: (1) Data Workshop; (2) Assessment Process utilizing webinars; and (3) Review Workshop. The product of the Data Workshop is a data report which FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 6507 compiles and evaluates potential datasets and recommends which datasets are appropriate for assessment analyses. The product of the Assessment Process is a stock assessment report which describes the fisheries, evaluates the status of the stock, estimates biological benchmarks, projects future population conditions, and recommends research and monitoring needs. The assessment is independently peer reviewed at the Review Workshop. The product of the Review Workshop is a Summary documenting panel opinions regarding the strengths and weaknesses of the stock assessment and input data. Participants for SEDAR Workshops are appointed by the Gulf of Mexico, South Atlantic, and Caribbean Fishery Management Councils and NOAA Fisheries Southeast Regional Office, HMS Management Division, and Southeast Fisheries Science Center. Participants include: Data collectors and database managers; stock assessment scientists, biologists, and researchers; constituency representatives including fishermen, environmentalists, and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs); international experts; and staff of Councils, Commissions, and state and federal agencies. The items of discussion in the Review Workshop agenda are as follows: The Review Panel participants will review the stock assessment reports to determine if they are scientifically sound. Although non-emergency issues not contained in this agenda may come before this group for discussion, those issues may not be the subject of formal action during this meeting. Action will be restricted to those issues specifically identified in this notice and any issues arising after publication of this notice that require emergency action under section 305(c) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, provided the public has been notified of the intent to take final action to address the emergency.

Permit No. 18537, issued on August 8, 2014 (79 FR 19578), authorizes takes of Steller sea lions during aerial, vessel, and ground surveys in support of the long-term Steller sea lions research program. It also authorizes incidental disturbance of California sea lions (Zalophus californianus), and northern fur (Callorhinus ursinus), harbor (Phoca vitulina), spotted (Phoca largha), ribbon (Histriophoca fasciata), ringed (Phoca hispida hispida), and bearded (Erignathus barbatus) seals during research activities, and annual unintentional mortality of 5 Steller sea lions from the Western Distinct Population Segment (wDPS) and 10 Steller sea lions from the Eastern DPS. See tables in permit for numbers of takes by species, stock and activity. The permit is valid through August 31, 2019. The permit holder is requesting the permit be amended to increase the number of California and Steller (wDPS) sea lions taken during aerial surveys from 4,725 to 10,000, and from 48,000 to 75,000, respectively. The request is in response to observed trends within recent years of increasing northerly movement of California sea lions, and as a result of this, an increase in observed animals in the current research area. In addition, the use of more sophisticated equipment has provided better resolution and quality of images taken, and, therefore, higher differentiation among pinnipeds observed. The permit holder also requests authorization to increase the volume on a single blood draw from Steller sea lions from up to 1 ml/kg to up to 4 ml/kg. The increase would support research projects related to the impacts of contaminants on immune and endocrine parameters in young Steller sea lions. In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), an initial determination has been made that the activities proposed are consistent with the Preferred Alternative in the Final Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement for Steller Sea Lion and Northern Fur Seal Research (NMFS SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\08FEN1.SGM 08FEN1
