Background

The Department received timely requests from petitioner,\1\, the Louisiana Shrimp Association (``LSA''), and certain individual companies, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), during the anniversary month of February 2007, for administrative reviews of the antidumping duty orders on shrimp from Brazil, Ecuador, India, and Thailand covering 40 companies for Brazil, 64 companies for Ecuador, 313 companies for India, and 142 companies for Thailand. The Department is now initiating administrative reviews of the orders covering these companies.

\1\ Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Committee (``Petitioner'').

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, 72 FR 5007 (February 2, 2007)), 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 ``Incomplete Requests for Review'' section 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 on approximately February 28, 2008.

Note 1--In the 2004-2006 administrative review, the Department preliminarily found that the following companies comprised a single entity: Aqu[aacute]tica Maricultura do Brasil Ltda. and Aquafeed do Brasil Ltda. If the Department makes a final determination that these companies comprise a single entity in the 2004-2006 administrative review, we will also treat these companies as a single entity for purposes of this administrative review, absent information to the contrary. Note 2--In the original investigation, the Department found that the following companies comprised a single entity: Central de Industrializacao e Distribuicao de Alimentos Ltda. and Cia. Exportadora de Produtos do Mar (Produmar). (The company names ``Central de Industria'' and ``Cida Central de Industria'', for which we also received requests for review, are variations of the name Central de Industrializacao e Distribuicao de Alimentos Ltda.) Absent information to the contrary, we intend to continue to treat these companies as a single entity for purposes of this Administrative review. Note 3--We received a request for an administrative review of both Compescal--Comercio de Pescado Aracatiense Ltda. and Comercio de Pescado Aracatiense Ltda. There is a letter on the record of the 2004- 2006 administrative review stating that these companies are the same. Therefore, we are initiating the 2006-2007 administrative review with respect to Compescal--Comercio de Pescado Aracatiense Ltda. Note 4--In the original investigation, the Department found that the following companies comprised a single entity: Empresa de Armazenagem Frigorifica Ltda. and Maricultura Netuno S.A. (The company name ``Empaf--Empresa de Armazenagem Frigorifica Ltda.'', for which we also received a request for review, is a variation of the name Empresa de Armazenagem Frigorifica Ltda.) Absent information to the contrary, we intend to continue to treat these companies as a single entity for purposes of this administrative review. Note 5--We received requests for review of Marine Maricultura do Nordeste SA, Marine Maricultura do Nordeste and Marine Maricultura Nordeste SA. In the 2004-2006 administrative review, we confirmed that Marine Maricultura do Nordeste SA, Marine Maricultura do Nordeste and Marine Maricultura Nordeste SA are, in fact, the same company, and that the correct company name is Marine Maricultura do Nordeste SA. Therefore, we are initiating the 2006-2007 administrative review with respect to Marine Maricultura do Nordeste SA. Note 6--The petitioners and/or the LSA's requests for review included certain companies with identical names but different addresses. For purposes of initiation, we have treated these companies as separate entities. Note 7--We received a request for an administrative review of both Potiguar Alimenbtos do Mar Ltda. and Potiguar Aliments do Mar Ltda. In the 2004-2006 administrative review, the petitioners withdrew the request for review of Potiguar Alimenbtos do Mar Ltda. because the spelling of the company name contained a typographical error. The correct spelling of the company name is Potiguar Alimentos do Mar Ltda. Therefore, we are initiating the 2006-2007 administrative review with respect to Potiguar Alimentos do Mar Ltda., not Potiguar Alimenbtos do Mar Ltda.

[caret] The LSA's requests 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 administrative review. In the 2004-2006 administrative review, the Department preliminarily 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. If the Department makes a final determination that these companies comprise a single entity in the 2004-2006 administrative review, we will also treat these companies as a single entity for purposes of this administrative review, absent information to the contrary. In the 2004-2006 administrative review, the Department preliminarily found that Coastal Corporation Ltd. is the successor-in-interest to Coastal Trawlers Ltd. If the Department continues to make this finding in the final results of the 2004-2006 administrative review, we will rescind this review with respect to Coastal Trawlers Ltd. In the 2004-2006 administrative review, S B Agro (India) Ltd. informed the Department that it changed its name in January 2001 and it is now doing business as Sun-Bio Technology Limited. Therefore, in this review, the Department intends to request information from Sun-Bio Technology Limited. If we determine that S B Agro (India) Ltd. no longer exists, we will rescind the review with respect to this company name. 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, petitioner withdrew its review request for Sagarvihar Fisheries Pvt. Ltd. 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. The petitioner's and/or the LSA's requests for review included certain companies with identical names but different addresses.

Incomplete Requests for Review

We have not initiated administrative reviews with respect to the companies listed below 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. Although the LSA requested that the Department reconsider this decision, we continue to find that it is inappropriate to initiate an administrative review of companies which we know that we cannot locate. Based on previous unsuccessful efforts by the Department to locate these companies, further efforts would be futile, absent new information as to their location.

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 the largest exporters/producers by U.S. sales/export volume.

Quantity and Value (``Q&V'') Questionnaire

In advance of issuance of the antidumping questionnaire, we will also be requiring all parties for whom a review is requested to respond to a Q&V questionnaire, which will request information on the respective quantity and U.S. dollar sales value of all exports of shrimp to the United States during the period February 1, 2006, through January 31, 2007. The Q&V questionnaire will be available on the Department's Web site at http://www.trade.gov/ia/. The responses to the

Q&V questionnaire are due to the Department by close of business on April 23, 2007. Due to the time constraints imposed by our statutory and regulatory deadlines, the Department may be unable to grant any extensions for the submission of the Q&V questionnaire responses. In responding to the Q&V questionnaire, please refer to the instructions contained in the Q&V questionnaire.

All firms requested for review are required to submit a complete response to the Q&V questionnaire, within the time limits established in this notice of initiation, in order for such information to receive consideration. For parties that fail to timely respond to the Q&V questionnaire, the Department may resort to the use of facts otherwise available, and may employ an adverse inference if the Department determines that the party failed to cooperate by not acting to the best of its ability. See section 776 of the Act. All information submitted by respondents in these administrative reviews is subject to verification. See section 782 of the Act. Due to the large number of parties in these proceedings, and the Department's need to complete its proceedings within the statutory deadlines, the Department will be limited in its ability to extend deadlines on the above submissions. As noted above, the Q&V questionnaire will be available on the Department's Web site at http://www.trade.gov/ia/.

Interested parties must submit applications for disclosure under administrative protective orders in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. Instructions for filing such applications may be found on the Department's Web site at http://www.trade.gov/ia/.

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

Dated: April 2, 2007. James P. Maeder, Director, AD/CVD Operations, Office 2.
