Reinstatement and Suspension of Liquidation Because we have preliminarily established that TRBs from the PRC manufactured and exported by SGBC/ SKF is being sold at less than NV, SGBC/SKF is hereby preliminarily reinstated in the antidumping duty order. We will instruct CBP to suspend liquidation of all entries of subject merchandise manufactured and exported by SGBC/SKF, entered or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. Furthermore, a cash deposit requirement of 9.81 percent will be in effect for all shipments of the subject merchandise manufactured and exported by SGBC/SKF entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of this notice. This requirement shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries (MA DMF) submitted a complete application for an Exempted Fishing Permit (EFP) on June 27, 2016, to conduct commercial fishing activities that the regulations would otherwise restrict. The EFP would authorize one vessel to possess and transport approximately 600 sublegal-sized male, and egg-bearing, v-notched, and sublegal-sized female lobsters during normal fishing operations in Lobster Management Area (LMA) 2. These lobsters will be delivered to MA DMF staff for use in laboratory research. The research will study the effects of climate change and thermal stress on reproduction in lobsters and requires reproductively capable lobsters to examine/observe mating success, fecundity, egg quality, and overall reproductive capacity. Funding for this study has been awarded under the Saltonstall-Kennedy Research Program (Grant #NA16NMF4270242). This study is designed to investigate the decline and recruitment failure of the Southern New England lobster stock. MA DMF is requesting specific exemptions from Federal lobster regulations on: 1. Minimum legal size harvest and possession requirements specified at 50 CFR 697.20(a)(4); 2. Restrictions on the harvest, possession, and transport of egg-bearing females at § 697.20(d)(1) through (3); and 3. Restrictions on the harvest and possession of standard v-notch females detailed at § 697.20(g)(3) through (4). VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:08 Jul 12, 2016 Jkt 238001 If the EFP is approved, all exempted collections would take place on designated collection days during the normal commercial fishing activity of the participating vessel. No additional and/or modified gear or effort would be used, so no additional impacts to bycatch, marine mammals, or endangered species are anticipated beyond the risks associated with normal fishing operations. This project will collect approximately 400 egg-bearing females and 200 otherwise restricted lobsters for scientific study. All lobsters caught under the EFP for research purposes would be banded with a different color to distinguish them from the legally harvestable commercial catch, and any egg-bearing females would be held separately from the remainder of the catch. A MA DMF staff member would meet the vessel at the dock after each collection trip to take possession of the EFP-authorized lobsters and bring them to the MA DMF facility for processing and experimental study. No more than a total of four collection days/trips of typical commercial fishing activity are anticipated under this EFP. If approved, MA DMF may request minor modifications and extensions to the EFP throughout the study period. EFP modifications and extensions may be granted without further notice if they are deemed essential to facilitate completion of the proposed research and have minimal impacts that do not change the scope or impact of the initially approved EFP request. Any fishing activity conducted outside the scope of the exempted fishing activity would be prohibited. Authority: 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq. Dated: July 8, 2016. Emily H.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries 
(MA DMF) submitted a complete application for an Exempted Fishing 
Permit (EFP) on June 27, 2016, to conduct commercial fishing activities 
that the regulations would otherwise restrict. The EFP would authorize 
one vessel to possess and transport approximately 600 sublegal-sized 
male, and egg-bearing, v-notched, and sublegal-sized female lobsters 
during normal fishing operations in Lobster Management Area (LMA) 2. 
These lobsters will be delivered to MA DMF staff for use in laboratory 
research. The research will study the effects of climate change and 
thermal stress on reproduction in lobsters and requires reproductively 
capable lobsters to examine/observe mating success, fecundity, egg 
quality, and overall reproductive capacity.
    Funding for this study has been awarded under the Saltonstall-
Kennedy Research Program (Grant #NA16NMF4270242). This study is 
designed to investigate the decline and recruitment failure of the 
Southern New England lobster stock. MA DMF is requesting specific 
exemptions from Federal lobster regulations on:
    1. Minimum legal size harvest and possession requirements specified 
at 50 CFR 697.20(a)(4);
    2. Restrictions on the harvest, possession, and transport of egg-
bearing females at Sec.  697.20(d)(1) through (3); and
    3. Restrictions on the harvest and possession of standard v-notch 
females detailed at Sec.  697.20(g)(3) through (4).
    If the EFP is approved, all exempted collections would take place 
on designated collection days during the normal commercial fishing 
activity of the participating vessel. No additional and/or modified 
gear or effort would be used, so no additional impacts to bycatch, 
marine mammals, or endangered species are anticipated beyond the risks

collection trip to take possession of the EFP-authorized lobsters and 
bring them to the MA DMF facility for processing and experimental 
study. No more than a total of four collection days/trips of typical 
commercial fishing activity are anticipated under this EFP.
    If approved, MA DMF may request minor modifications and extensions 
to the EFP throughout the study period. EFP modifications and 
extensions may be granted without further notice if they are deemed 
essential to facilitate completion of the proposed research and have 
minimal impacts that do not change the scope or impact of the initially 
approved EFP request. Any fishing activity conducted outside the scope 
of the exempted fishing activity would be prohibited.
