Background

The Department received timely requests from the Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Committee (hereinafter, Domestic Producers), the American Shrimp Processors Association (ASPA), and the Louisiana Shrimp Association (LSA), and certain individual companies, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), during the anniversary month of February 2010, for administrative reviews of the antidumping duty orders on shrimp from Brazil, India, and Thailand. The Department is now initiating administrative reviews of these orders covering multiple companies for Brazil, India, and Thailand, as noted in the “Initiation of Reviews” section of this notice.

In accordance with the Department's statement in its notice of opportunity to request administrative reviews, 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 (see Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 75 FR 5037 (February 1, 2010)). We have also not initiated administrative reviews with respect to those companies we previously determined to be duplicates or no longer exist.

Finally, we have not initiated an administrative review with respect to the following companies requested by the Domestic Producers, the ASPA, and the LSA, because these companies were revoked from the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Thailand as a result of the partial revocation of the order, effective January 16, 2009: Andaman Seafood Co., Ltd., Wales & Co. Universe Limited, Chanthaburi Frozen Food Co., Ltd., Chanthaburi Seafoods Co., Ltd., Intersia Foods Co., Ltd. (formerly Y2K Frozen Foods Co., Ltd.), Phatthana Seafood Co., Ltd., Phatthana Frozen Food Co., Ltd., Thailand Fishery Cold Storage Public Co., Ltd., Thai International Seafood Co., Ltd., S.C.C. Frozen Seafood Co., Ltd., and Sea Wealth Frozen Food Co., Ltd. (collectively, the Rubicon Group); and, Thai I-Mei Frozen Foods Co., Ltd. See Implementation of the Findings of the WTO Panel in United States—Antidumping Measure on Shrimp from Thailand: Notice of Determination Under Section 129 of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act and Partial Revocation of the Antidumping Duty Order on Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Thailand, 74 FR 5638, 5639 (January 30, 2009); and, Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Thailand: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review and Notice of Revocation in Part, 74 FR 52452 (October 13, 2009).

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, India and Thailand. We intend to issue the final results of these reviews by February 28, 2011.
