SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

The Department received timely requests from the petitioner1, the Louisiana Shrimp Association (“LSA”), and certain individual companies, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), during the anniversary month of February 2008, for administrative reviews of the antidumping duty orders on shrimp from Brazil, Ecuador, India, and Thailand. The Department is now initiating administrative reviews of these orders covering 43 companies for Brazil, 81 companies for Ecuador, 336 companies for India, and 165 companies for Thailand, as noted in the “Initiation of Reviews” section of this notice.

In accordance with the Department's recent statement in its notice of opportunity to request administrative reviews (see Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 73 FR 6477, 6478 (February 4, 2008)), we have not initiated administrative reviews with respect to those companies which the Department was unable to locate in prior segments and for which no new information as to the party's location was provided by the requestor. We have also not initiated administrative reviews with respect to those companies we previously determined to be duplicates or to no longer exist. See “Initiation of Reviews,” “Incomplete Requests for Review,” and “Requests for Review of Non-Existent Companies” sections of this notice for country-specific lists of the companies for which we did not initiate an administrative review.

Initiation of Reviews

In accordance with section 751(a)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), we are initiating administrative reviews of the antidumping duty orders on shrimp from Brazil, Ecuador, India and Thailand. We intend to issue the final results of these reviews by February 28, 2009.Start Printed Page 18755

Note 1 - In the 2004-2006 administrative review, the Department found that Aquática Maricultura do Brasil Ltda. and Aquafeed do Brasil Ltda. comprised a single entity. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Brazil: Final Results and Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 72 FR 52061, 52064 (Sept. 12, 2007) (Brazil Final Results AR1). Absent information to the contrary, we intend to continue to treat these companies as a single entity for purposes of the 2007-2008 administrative review.
Note 2 - We received a request for an administrative review of Cida Central de Ind. e Distribuicao de Alimentos Ltda. and of Cida Central de Industria. The latter company name, which was accompanied by an incomplete address in the review request, was determined in the 2006-2007 administrative review to be a variation of the name Cida Central de Ind. e Distribuicao de Alimentos Ltda. See Notice of Initiation of Administrative Reviews of the Antidumping Duty Orders on Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Brazil, Ecuador, India and Thailand, 72 FR 17100, 17109 (Apr. 6, 2007) (2006-2007 Administrative Review Initiation Notice). Therefore, we are initiating the 2007-2008 administrative review only with respect to Cida Central de Ind. e Distribuicao de Alimentos Ltda.
Note 3- We received a request for an administrative review of Empaf - Empresa de Armazenagem Frigorifica Ltda. (“Empaf”) and Maricultura Netuno S.A. (“Maricultura Netuno”). In the original investigation, we found that Empaf and Maricultura Netuno comprised a single entity. See Notice of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Certain Frozen and Canned Warmwater Shrimp from Brazil, 69 FR 76910 (Dec. 23, 2004). In the 2006-2007 administrative review, we preliminarily determined that Netuno Alimentos S.A. is the successor in interest to Empaf. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Brazil: Preliminary Results and Preliminary Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 73 FR 12081 (Mar. 6, 2008). If the Department continues to make this finding in the final results of the 2006-2007 administrative review, we will rescind this review with respect to Empaf, and treat Netuno Alimentos S.A. and Maricultura Netuno as a single entity for purposes of the 2007-2008 administrative review, absent evidence to the contrary.
Note 4 - We received requests for review of Marine Maricultura do Nordeste SA, and Marine Maricultura do Nordeste with two different addresses. In the 2004-2006 administrative review, we confirmed that Marine Maricultura do Nordeste SA is the correct company name, and that the company operated from two locations. See Brazil Final Results AR1, 72 FR at 52062. Therefore, we are initiating the 2007-2008 administrative review only with respect to Marine Maricultura do Nordeste SA.
Note 5 - We received two review requests for Pesquira Maguary Ltda. with two different addresses. Information obtained in the 2006-2007 administrative review indicated that the two addresses apply to the same company. See Memorandum to the File entitled “Placement of Information from the 2006-2007 Administrative Review on the Record of the 2007-2008 Administrative Review,” dated March 31, 2008. Therefore, we have included this company only once for purposes of initiation of the 2007-2008 administrative review.
Note 6 - We received two review requests for SM Pescados Industria Comercio E Exportacao Ltda, both with virtually the same address. Therefore, we are including this company only once for purposes of initiation of the 2007-2008 administrative review.

# We have received multiple review requests for companies with the same name but different addresses. For purposes of initiation, we have treated these companies as separate entities, pending resolution of the issue as to whether these comprise distinct entities (or whether they are multiple locations of the same entity).
## In the 2006-2007 administrative review, the Department preliminarily found that Asvini Fisheries Private Limited is the successor-in-interest to Asvini Fisheries Limited. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India: Preliminary Results and Preliminary Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 73 FR 12103, 12105-06 (Mar. 6, 2008) (2006-2007 Indian Shrimp Preliminary Results). If the Department continues to make this finding in the final results of the 2006-2007 administrative review, we will rescind this review with respect to Asvini Fisheries Limited.
### In the 2004-2006 administrative review, the Department found that the following companies comprised a single entity: Devi Marine Food Exports Private Limited, Kader Investment and Trading Company Private Limited, Kader Exports Private Limited, Liberty Frozen Foods Private Limited, Liberty Oil Mills Limited, Premier Marine Products, and Universal Cold Storage Private Limited. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India: Final Results and Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 72 FR 52055, 52058 (Sept. 12, 2007). Absent information to the contrary, we intend to continue to treat these companies as a single entity for purposes of this administrative review.
#### In the 2004-2006 administrative review, Sagarvihar Fisheries Pvt. Ltd. informed the Department that it is now doing business as Indepesca Overseas Pvt. Ltd. However, in the course of that review, the petitioner withdrew its review request for Sagarvihar Fisheries Pvt. Ltd. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From India; Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 71 FR 41419, 41421 (July 21, 2006). Therefore, the Department will only include Sagarvihar Fisheries Pvt. Ltd. in this review (via its exports under the name Indepesca Overseas Pvt. Ltd.) if it determines that Indepesca Overseas Pvt. Ltd. is the successor in interest to this company.
##### In the 2006-2007 administrative review, the Department preliminarily found that Suryamitra Exim (P) Ltd. is the successor-in-interest to Surya Marine Exports. See 2006-2007 Indian Shrimp Preliminary Results, 73 FR at 12106. If the Department continues to make this finding in the final results of the 2006-2007 administrative review, we will rescind this review with respect to Surya Marine Exports.
###### The petitioner's request for review included certain companies with similar names. For purposes of initiation, we have treated these companies as the same entity based on information obtained in the 2004-2006 or 2006-2007 administrative review. See the March 31, 2008, memorandum from Elizabeth Eastwood to the File entitled, “Placing Public Information from the 2004-2006 and 2007-2008 Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews on the Record of the 2007-2008 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review on Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India.” For RVR Marine Products Private Limited, Sprint Exports Pvt. Ltd., and Universal Cold Storage Private Limited, see Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India; Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 73 FR 6125, 6127 (Feb. 1, 2008) (Indian Shrimp Rescission FR).
####### In the 2006-2007 administrative review, the Department found that the following companies comprised a single entity: Diamond Seafoods Exports, Edhayam Frozen Foods Pvt. Ltd., Kadalkanny Frozen Foods, and Theva & Company. See 2006-2007 Indian Shrimp Preliminary Results, 73 FR at 12106. Absent information to the contrary, we intend to continue to treat these companies as a single entity for purposes of this administrative review.
######## The petitioner's request for review included the company Sri Chandrakantha Marine Exports, Ltd. For purposes of initiation, we have initiated a review on the correct company name (i.e., Sri Chandrakantha Marine Exports), but have not initiated a review on the duplicate name (i.e., Sri Chandrakantha Marine Exports, Ltd.) based on information on the record of this review. See the March 27, 2008, memorandum from Elizabeth Eastwood to the File entitled, “2007-2008 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India: Clarification of the Name and Address of Sri Chandrakantha Marine Exports.”

Notice of No Sales

The companies on which we are initiating this review should notify the Department within 30 days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register if they had no shipments, entries, or sales of the merchandise under consideration during the POR.

Selection of Respondents

Section 777A(c)(1) of the Act directs the Department to calculate individual dumping margins for each known exporter and producer of the subject merchandise. Where it is not practicable to examine all known producers/exporters of subject merchandise because of the large number of such companies, section 777A(c)(2) of the Act permits the Department to limit its examination to either: (1) a sample of exporters, producers or types of products that is statistically valid based on the information available at the time of selection; or (2) exporters and producers accounting for the largest volume of subject merchandise from the exporting country that can be reasonably examined. Due to the large number of firms requested for these administrative reviews and the resulting administrative burden to review each company for which a request has been made, the Department is exercising its authority to limit the number of respondents selected for review. See section 777A(c)(2) of the Act. In selecting the respondents for individual review, the Department intends to select respondents based on U.S. Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) data for U.S. imports during the period of review.

We intend to release the CBP data under administrative protective order (APO) to all parties having an APO within five days of publication of this Federal Register notice, and to make our decisions regarding respondent Start Printed Page 18766selection within 20 days of publication of this notice. The Department invites comments regarding the CBP data and respondent selection within 10 days of publication of this Federal Register notice.

Interested parties must submit applications for disclosure under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. Instructions for filing such applications may be found on the Department's website at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/​apo.

This initiation and notice are in accordance with section 751(a)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i).
