of Antidumping Duty Investigations:
On January 21, the Department announced the initiation of antidumping duty investigations on imports of certain frozen and canned warmwater shrimp from Brazil, Ecuador, India, the People's Republic of China, Thailand, and Vietnam.
These investigations were initiated after having found that the petitions filed by the Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Committee met our statutory requirements.
Next Steps: The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) is scheduled to issue its preliminary injury determination on or before February 17. If the ITC should find that there is a reasonable indication that the domestic industry is materially injured, or is threatened with material injury, as a result of imports of shrimp, the investigations would proceed, and the Department would be scheduled to make its preliminary determinations in June 2004. If the ITC makes a negative determination on imports from one or more of the named exporting countries, then those investigations would be terminated.
Petitioner: The Petitions requesting the initiation of these investigations were filed on December 31, 2003 by The Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Committee, whose members are located in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Texas.
Product Description: Products covered include warmwater shrimp, whether frozen or canned, wild-caught (ocean harvested) or farm-raised (produced by aquaculture), head-on or head-off, shell-on or peeled, tail-on or tail-off, deveined or not deveined, cooked or raw, or otherwise processed in frozen or canned form.
