Background

On February 1, 2006, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published in the Federal Register a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from India for the period August 4, 2004, through January 31, 2006. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 71 FR 5239 (Feb. 1, 2006). Between February 23, 2006, and February 28, 2006, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b)(2), certain respondents requested a review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from India. In addition, on February 28, 2006, the petitioner[1] also requested an administrative review for numerous Indian exporters of subject merchandise in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b)(1).

In April 2006, the Department initiated an administrative review for 347 companies and we requested that each provide data on the quantity and value of its exports of subject merchandise to the United States during the period of review (POR). These companies are listed in the Department's notice of initiation. See Notice of Initiation of Administrative Reviews of the Antidumping Duty Orders on Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Brazil, Ecuador, India and Thailand, 71 FR 17819 (Apr. 7, 2006) (Notice of Initiation).

Between March 29, 2006, and July 6, 2006, the requests for administrative review were withdrawn for 268 companies, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).

(Wellcome II); (266) Winner Seafoods (Winner); (267) Wisdom Marine Exports (Wisdom); and (268) Z A. Food Products (Z A.). Section 351.213(d)(1) of the Department's regulations requires that the Secretary rescind an administrative review if a party requesting a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation. Therefore, because all requests for administrative reviews were timely withdrawn for the companies listed above, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are rescinding this review with regard to these companies.

In addition, from April through June 2006, the Department received information that the Notice of Initiation contained duplicate company names for five entities. Specifically, we received requests for review of four of these companies from both the petitioner and the respondent with variations: (1) Devi Marine Food Exports Ltd. and Devi Marine Food Exports Private Limited; (2) Kader Exports and Kader Exports Private Limited; (3) Magnum Estate Private and Magnum Estate Private Limited; and (4) Manufacturer Falcon Marine Exports and Falcon Marine Exports Limited. For a fifth company, the petitioner requested a review of the company twice: Navyauga Exports and Navayuga Exports Ltd. We have received information on the record of this proceeding showing that: (1) These company-name variation pairs refer to the same companies; and (2) the correct legal names for these companies are Devi Marine Food Exports Private Limited; Kader Exports Private Limited; Magnum Estate Private Limited; Falcon Marine Exports Limited; and Navayuga Exports Ltd. We clarify that we will include these companies in our administrative review only once. Therefore, because the companies identified above will be included in this administrative review and because keeping the incorrect company names with the list of companies included in this administrative review creates administrative difficulties, we are rescinding the review of “Devi Marine Food Exports Ltd.”, “Kader Exports”, “Magnum Estate Private”, “Manufacturer Falcon Marine Exports”, and “Navyauga Exports”.Start Printed Page 41421

In June 2006, the Department also received information indicating that one of the companies named in the Notice of Initiation is now doing business under a different name. This company is Surya Marine Exports/Suryamitra Exim Pvt. Ltd. Therefore, in order to determine whether this company is subject to this proceeding, the Department must make a successor-in-interest finding with respect to it. We intend to make such a finding no later than the preliminary results in this case.

As noted above, the petitioner and certain respondents withdrew their requests for an administrative review for the following companies within the time limits set forth in 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1): Abad; Accelerated I; Accelerated II; Adani; Aditya; Agri Marine; AL Mustafa; Alapatt; Alfuzz; Allana; AMI; All Seas; Alsa; Ameena; Ananda I; Ananda II; Andaman; Anjaneya; Anjani; Apex; Aqua; Arsha; A.S Marine; ASF; Ashwini; Asvini I; Asvini II; Asvini III; Asvrm; Aswin; Atta; Avanti; Baby Marine Sarass; Bell; Bengal; Bharat; Bhavani; Bhisti; Bijaya; Bilal; Bluefin; Bluepark; Blue Water; BMR; Brilliant; Britto; Capital; Capithan; Castlecrock; Central Calcutta; Cham I; Cham II; Cham III; Chand; Chemmeens; Choice I; Choice II; Corlim; C P Aquaculture; Danda; Dariapur; Deepmala; Devi I; Devi II; Devi III; Dhanamjaya; Diamond; Digha; Dorothy; Edhayam; El-Te; Esmorio; Excel; Exporter Coreline Exports; Fernando; Firoz; Five Star I; Five Star II; Forstar; Freeze; Frigerio; Frontline; G A; Gadre; Galaxy; Gausia; Gayathri; Geo Aquatic; Geo Seafoods; G.K S; Goan Bounty; Gold; Golden; Gopal Seafoods; Grandtrust; Gtc; GVR I; GVR II; Hanjar; Hanswati; HIC ABF; Hiravata; Hiravati I; Hiravati II; HMG; Honest; I Ahamed; India; Indian I; Indian II; Indo Aquatics; Interfish; International Freezefish; Interseas; Jagadeesh; Jaya Lakshmi I; Jaya Satya; Jaya Lakshmi II; Jinny Marine; J R K; Kaushalya; Kay Kay; Keshodwala; Key; King Fish; KNR; Koluthara; Konkan; K.R.M.; K.V Marine; Lakshmi; Lansea; Laxmi; Lewis Natural; L.G Seafoods; Libran; Lourde; Malabar; Malnad; Mamta; Marina; Marine; Markoorlose; Meenaxi; Miki; M K; M.R.H.; Msngr; Mumbai; Naga Hanuman; Naik I; Naik II; Nas; National; N.C; Nekkanti; New Royal; Noble; Noorani; Omsons; Overseas; Padmaja; Partytime; Philips; Pijikay; Pisces; Premier I; Premier II; Pronto; Rahul I; Rahul II; Raj; Ramalmgeswara; Rameshwar; Raunaq; Ravi; Raysons; Razban; RBT; Reddy & Reddy; Regent; Relish; Riviera; R K; Rohi; Royal I; Royal II; Rubian; Ruby; Ruchi; RVR; S A; S & S Sabri; Safa; Sagar Foods; Sagar Grandhi; Sagar Samrat; Sagrvihar; Sai; Salet; Samrat; Sanchita; Sandhya; Santhi; Sarveshwari; Satya; Satyam; Sawant; S B Agro; S Chanchala; Sea Rose; Sealand; Seaperl; Selvam; Sheimar; Sharon; Shimpo; Shipper Exporter National Steel; Shivaganga; Shroff; Siddiq; Silver; Sita; S K; Skyfish; SLS; Sonia; Sourab; Sprint; Sree; Sreevas; Sri Satya; Sri Sidhi; Sri Venkata; SSFLtd; S S; Star Agro; Star Fish; Sterling; Surya; Supreme; Swarna; TBR; Teekay; The Canning; Theva; Tim Tim; Tony; Tri Marine; Trinity Exports; Tri-Tee; Ulka; Upasana; Usha; Varnita; Veraval; Vijayalaxmi; Vinner; V Marine; V.S; Waterbase I; Waterbase II; Wellcome I; Wellcome II; Winner; Wisdom; and Z A. Therefore, because no other interested party requested a review for these companies, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are rescinding this review with respect to these companies.

Additionally, as noted above, we are rescinding the review of “Devi Marine Food Exports Ltd.”, “Kader Exports”, “Magnum Estate Private”, “Manufacturer Falcon Marine Exports”, and “Navyauga Exports”.

This notice is published in accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
