USITC Votes to Keep the Shrimping Anti-dumping Order in Place

May 2, 2017
Press Release

 

Today Congressman Garret Graves (LA-06) commended the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) vote to unanimously keep the shrimping anti-dumping trade enforcement orders in place for five more years against China, India, Thailand and Vietnam.  The orders on Brazil were revoked, but imports from Brazil are minimal.


"The ITC made the right decision in ensuring our commercial fishers can continue to compete fairly and put fresh, wild Gulf seafood on America's table. We have watched for years as foreign countries have increasingly tried to run our fishers out of business by illegally subsidizing and dumping foreign, farmed shrimp on American markets. We were proud to testify before the ITC to advocate for Louisiana's fishermen and women and commend the commission's action,” said Graves.
