Anti-subsidy

The Coalition of Gulf Shrimp Industries filed a countervailing duty petition on December 28, 2012 against shrimp imported from China, Ecuador, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam. On August 19, 2013 the Department of Commerce published its final affirmative CVD determination for these imports from China (see http://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn/2013/1308frn/2013-20170.txt), Ecuador (see http://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn/2013/1308frn/2013-20169.txt), India (http://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn/2013/1308frn/2013-20167.txt), Malaysia (see http://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn/2013/1308frn/2013-20168.txt), and Vietnam (see http://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn/2013/1308frn/2013-20172.txt); it reached a negative determination for Indonesia (see http://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn/2013/1308frn/2013-20164.txt) and Thailand (see http://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn/2013/1308frn/2013-20166.txt).
On September 20, 2013 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that a U.S. industry is neither materially injured nor threatened with material injury by reason of imports of frozen warmwater shrimp from China, Ecuador, India, Malaysia, and Vietnam (see http://www.usitc.gov/press_room/news_release/2013/er0920ll1.htm). As a result of the negative determinations, CVD orders were not issued on imports of these products from any of the countries subject to the investigation.
