Magnuson-Stevens Act Provisions; Fisheries of the Northeastern United States; Northeast Multispecies Fishery; Final Rule To Allow Northeast Multispecies Sector Vessels Access to Year-Round Closed Areas
Document Number: 2013-29857
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-12-16
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
This rule allows fishing access for Northeast multispecies sectors to two portions of the Southern New England Nantucket Lightship Closed Area for the remainder of the 2013 fishing year under specified conditions. Although NMFS considered and proposed exemption requests that would allow sector vessels access to portions of Georges Bank Closed Areas I and II, NMFS is not granting access to those areas at this time. The intent of this rule is to allow sector vessels increased opportunities to harvest non-groundfish stocks such as monkfish, dogfish, and skates while minimizing impacts to overfished groundfish stock such as Georges Bank cod and yellowtail flounder.

On July 15, 2011, pursuant to a decision of the Court of International Trade (CIT) that affirmed the International Trade Commission's (ITC's) negative injury determinations on remand in the second sunset review of the antidumping duty orders on bearings from Japan and the United Kingdom, the Department of Commerce (the Department) revoked the Orders.\1\ On May 16, 2013, the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (Federal Circuit) reversed the CIT's decision and ordered the CIT to reinstate the ITC's affirmative material injury determinations.\2\ Subsequently, on November 18, 2013, the CIT issued final judgment reinstating the ITC's affirmative injury determinations.\3\ Therefore, the Department is now reinstating the Orders. Additionally, the Department is resuming the administrative reviews of these orders for the periods May 1, 2009, through April 30, 2010, and May 1, 2010, through April 30, 2011.
Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From the People's Republic of China: Notice of Final Reconsideration of Changed Circumstances Review
Document Number: 2013-29838
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-12-16
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
The Department of Commerce (``Department'') has received information sufficient to warrant reconsideration of a completed changed circumstances review (``CCR'') of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') originally conducted in 2007.\1\ Based on evidence uncovered in the sixth administrative review (``AR6'') of this proceeding,\2\ we find the information submitted by Hilltop International (``Hilltop'') \3\ in this CCR contains material misrepresentations and, consequently, is unusable for any purposes. Accordingly, our original determination that Hilltop is the successor-in-interest to Yelin Enterprise Co. Hong Kong (``Yelin'') is reversed such that Hilltop should properly be considered part of the PRC-wide entity, absent a determination of its own rate separate from the PRC-wide entity.\4\
