ANTIDUMPING

Photo
Domestic shrimp producers in the United States formed the Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Committee and petitioned the U.S. government in late 2003 to investigate whether foreign exporters were unfairly "dumping" shrimp on the U.S. market.
 
Early in the government's determination process, GAA and others promoted alternatives to the proposed antidumping tariffs, but limited duties on imported shrimp were indeed established. Initial tariffs assigned to shrimp from Brazil, China, Ecuador, India, Thailand, and Vietnam during preliminary investigations varied from zero to over 112%. Except for China, which received a final countrywide duty of 112%, most of the named countries face final tariffs of 10% or less.
 
As the impacts of antidumping fully unfolded around the world, international markets and prices for shrimp shifted somewhat from their traditional positions. GAA's annual Global Shrimp Outlook meetings have been an important tool to help shrimp buyers and sellers align their positions relative to antidumping.
 
Click below for more on antidumping and its far-reaching effects. Much of this material was initially published in GAA's Global Aquaculture Advocate magazine.
