Shanghai Ocean International International Trading Co.,            17.23

------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the final results of the new shipper reviews, the Department 
determines that a dumping margin of 42.45 percent exists for 
merchandise produced and exported by Hubei Yuesheng Aquatic Products 
Co., Ltd. and a dumping margin of 26.10 percent exists for merchandise 
produced and exported by Weishan Hongda Aquatic Food Co., Ltd., 
covering the period September 1, 2013, through August 31, 2014.

Assessment

    The Department will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries covered by these reviews.\6\ In 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we have calculated importer-
specific (or customer-specific) assessment rates for merchandise 
subject to these reviews.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For these final results, we divided the total dumping margins 
(calculated as the difference between normal value and export price) 
for each of the respondents' importers or customers by the total number 
of kilograms the exporter sold to that importer or customer. We will 
direct CBP to assess the resulting per-kilogram dollar amount against 
each kilogram of merchandise in each of that importer's/customer's 
entries during the review period.
    For entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases 
submitted by companies individually examined during these reviews, the 
Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide 
rate. We intend to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after 
the date of publication of these final results of reviews.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of the administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date as provided

final results within five days of the date of publication of this

Notifications

    This notice serves as a final 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 Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the destruction of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written 
notification of the return or destruction of APO materials or 
conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to 
comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a sanctionable 
violation.
    These final results of reviews are issued and published in
