Taking and importing of Endangered Species; Taking of Sea Turtles Incidental to Power Plant Operations
Document Number: E8-7788
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-04-11
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
NMFS received seven applications for individual incidental take permits under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA) from power generating stations located on the coast of southern California for the entrainment of sea turtles incidental to routine operations associated with power plant operations. As a result of these applications, NMFS is considering whether to issue the permits in accordance with the ESA authorizing the incidental taking of endangered species. In order to issue the permits, NMFS must determine that these takings will not appreciably reduce the likelihood of survival and recovery for the species and that habitat conservation plans meet the requirements of the ESA. NMFS provides this notice to allow public comment on the applications and conservation plans. NMFS also seeks additional commercial and scientific data relevant to the documents.
Taking and Importing Marine Mammals; Taking Marine Mammals Incidental to a U.S. Navy Shock Trial
Document Number: E8-7778
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2008-04-11
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
NMFS has received a request from the U.S. Navy (Navy) for an authorization for the taking of marine mammals incidental to conducting a Full Ship Shock Trial (FSST) of the MESA VERDE (LPD 19) in the offshore waters of the Atlantic Ocean off Mayport, FL. By this document, NMFS is proposing regulations to govern that take. In order to issue final regulations governing the take and Letters of Authorization (LOAs) thereunder, NMFS must determine that the total taking will have a negligible impact on the affected species or stocks of marine mammals. NMFS regulations must set forth the permissible methods of take and other means of effecting the least practicable adverse impact on the affected species or stocks of marine mammals and their habitat, as well as monitoring and reporting requirements. NMFS invites comment on the proposed regulations and findings.

Document Number: E8-7465
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-04-09
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
On December 3, 2007, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') initiated sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on ferrovanadium from the People(s Republic of China (``PRC'') and the Republic of South Africa (``South Africa''), pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``Act''). See Initiation of Five-year (``Sunset'') Reviews, 72 FR 67890 (December 3, 2007) (``Sunset Initiations''); see also Notice of Amended Final Antidumping Duty Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order: Ferrovanadium From the People(s Republic of China, 68 FR 4168 (January 28, 2003) (``PRC Order''); Notice of Antidumping Duty Order: Ferrovanadium from the Republic of South Africa, 68 FR 4169 (January 28, 2003) (``South Africa Order''). Based on the notices of intent to participate and adequate responses filed by the domestic interested parties, and the lack of response from any respondent interested party, the Department conducted expedited sunset reviews of the PRC Order and South Africa Order pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 C.F.R. 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2). As a result of these sunset reviews, the Department finds that revocation of either the PRC Order or the South Africa Order would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping, at the levels indicated in the ``Final Results of Sunset Reviews'' section of this notice, infra.

Document Number: E8-7379
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2008-04-08
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
NMFS issues this proposed rule that would implement Amendment 30A 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).

Endangered and Threatened Species; Designation of Critical Habitat for North Pacific Right Whale
Document Number: E8-7233
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-04-08
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

Endangered and Threatened Wildlife; Sea Turtle Conservation
Document Number: 08-1107
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-04-08
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
NMFS issues this final rule to clarify the existing sea turtle conservation requirements for sea scallop dredge vessels entering waters south of 41[deg]9.0' N. latitude from May 1 through November 30 each year and to add a transiting provision to the requirements. Any vessel with a sea scallop dredge and required to have a Federal Atlantic sea scallop fishery permit, regardless of dredge size or vessel permit category, that enters waters south of 41[deg]9.0' N. latitude, from the shoreline to the outer boundary of the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) must have a chain mat on each dredge, unless the terms of the transiting provision are met. The chain-mat modified dredge is necessary to help reduce mortality and injury to endangered and threatened sea turtles in scallop dredge gear and to conserve sea turtles listed under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). This current action addresses a procedural error in the original rulemaking to require chain mats on scallop dredge gear, clarifies the existing requirements, and adds a transiting provision to the regulations. Any incidental take of threatened sea turtles in sea scallop dredge gear in compliance with this gear modification requirement and all other applicable requirements will be exempted from the ESA's take prohibition.

In addition, we have preliminarily determined to rescind the review with respect to one company because it had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. Interested parties are invited to comment on the preliminary results.

Initiation of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review: Certain Hot-Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products from Thailand
Document Number: E8-7204
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-04-07
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
In accordance with section 751(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.216(b), United States Steel Corporation (petitioner) filed a request for the Department of Commerce (the Department) to initiate a changed circumstances review of the antidumping duty order on certain hot-rolled carbon steel flat products (hot-rolled steel) from Thailand. Petitioner alleges that Sahaviriya Steel Industries Public Company Limited (SSI), a Thai hot-rolled steel producer previously revoked from the antidumping duty order, has resumed sales at prices below normal value (NV). Petitioner notes that SSI agreed in writing to reinstatement in the antidumping duty order if it was found to have resumed dumping, and contends that SSI violated this agreement by selling hot-rolled steel at less than NV in the United States subsequent to its revocation from the order. Therefore, petitioner requests that the Department reinstate the antidumping duty order with respect to SSI. The Department finds the information submitted by petitioner sufficient to warrant initiation of a changed circumstances review of the antidumping duty order on hot-rolled steel from Thailand with respect to SSI. In this changed circumstances review, we will determine whether SSI sold hot-rolled steel at less than NV subsequent to its revocation from the order. If we determine in this changed circumstances review that SSI sold hot-rolled steel at less than NV and resumed dumping, we will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to suspend liquidation of all entries of hot-rolled steel manufactured and exported by SSI.

If these preliminary results are adopted in our final results, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties based on the difference between the export price (EP) and the NV. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. See the ``Preliminary Results of Review'' section of this notice.
