Notice of Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Activated Carbon From the People's Republic of China
Based on affirmative final determinations by the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') and the International Trade Commission (``ITC''), the Department is issuing an antidumping duty order on certain activated carbon from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). On April 16, 2007, the ITC notified the Department of its affirmative determination of material injury to a U.S. industry (Certain Activated Carbon from China, Investigation No. 731-TA-1103 (Final), Publication 3913, April 2007).
Non-Malleable Cast Iron Pipe Fittings from the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review
The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') is conducting the third administrative review of the antidumping duty order on non- malleable cast iron pipe fittings (``NMP fittings'') from the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') covering the period April 1, 2005, through March 31, 2006. We preliminarily determine to apply adverse facts available (``AFA'') with respect to Myland Industrial Co., Ltd. (``Myland''), and Buxin Myland (Foundry) Ltd. (``Buxin''), which failed to cooperate to the best of their ability and failed to demonstrate their eligibility for a separate rate. If these preliminary results are adopted in our final results of this review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise during the period of review (``POR''). Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. We will issue the final results no later than 120 days from the date of publication of this notice.

Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act Provisions; Fisheries of the Northeastern United States; Interim Secretarial Action
NMFS implements this interim final rule pursuant to its authority to issue interim measures under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act). This temporary action implements measures to help end overfishing and rebuild the monkfish resource while NMFS conducts a stock assessment for the fishery and makes a final determination on Framework Adjustment 4 (Framework 4) to the Monkfish Fishery Management Plan (FMP).
Fisheries of the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico, and South Atlantic; Gulf of Mexico Vermilion Snapper Fishery Management Measures
NMFS issues this proposed rule that would implement a regulatory amendment to the Fishery Management Plan for the Reef Fish Resources of the Gulf of Mexico (FMP) prepared by the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council (Council). This proposed rule would reduce the minimum size limit for vermilion snapper to 10 inches (25.4 cm) total length (TL), eliminate the 10-fish recreational bag limit for vermilion snapper within the existing 20-fish aggregate reef fish bag limit, and eliminate the 40-day commercial closed season for vermilion snapper (from April 22 through May 31 each year). The intended effect of this proposed rule is to help achieve optimum yield (OY) by reducing vermilion snapper harvest limitations consistent with the findings of the recent stock assessment for this species.
