On January 3, 2011, the Department initiated the third sunset review of the CVD order on fresh and chilled Atlantic salmon from Norway pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act.
Based on a finding that the substantive responses were adequate, we determined to conduct a full sunset review of this CVD order.
On June 28, 2011, the Department published the preliminary results of this full sunset review, finding a likelihood of continuation or recurrence of subsidization with a net countervailable subsidy likely to prevail of 2.20 percent
Interested parties were invited to comment on the preliminary results. On September 7, 2011, we received a case brief from the GON, and on September 12, 2011, we received a rebuttal brief from Phoenix Salmon. We did not conduct a hearing because a hearing was not requested.
The product covered by the order is the species Atlantic salmon (Salmo Salar) marketed as specified herein; the order excludes all other species of salmon: Danube salmon, Chinook (also called “king” or “quinnat”), Coho (“silver”), Sockeye (“redfish” or “blueback”), Humpback (“pink”) and Chum (“dog”).
The HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes. The written description remains dispositive as to the scope of the product coverage.
