(Sea Wealth) as the successor-in-interest to the Rubicon Group as it operated during the period of investigation (POI) of the less-than- fair-value (LTFV) investigation. Further, we preliminarily determined that it was appropriate to revoke PFF and Sea Wealth from the antidumping duty order on shrimp from Thailand, effective as of January 16, 2009. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Thailand: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review and Notice of Intent to Revoke in Part, 74 FR 39042 (Aug. 5, 2009) (Preliminary Results). For these final results the Department continues to find that the current form of the Rubicon Group, inclusive of PFF and Sea Wealth, is the successor-in-interest to the Rubicon Group as it operated during the LTFV investigation. Accordingly, we are revoking PFF and Sea Wealth from the antidumping duty order on shrimp from Thailand, effective as of January 16, 2009.
