On December 28, 2012, the Coalition of Gulf Shrimp Industries filed petitions at the Commerce Department and the International Trade Commission (“ITC”) requesting countervailing duty (“CVD”) investigations into frozen warmwater shrimp from China, Ecuador, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam. The coalition believes that the foreign shrimp are injuring the domestic industry because of unfair foreign subsidies. According to the petition filed at the ITC, these countries account for 85 percent of shrimp imports to the United States. The petition documents $13.5 billion in government support to the fishing industries in those countries. ITC Commissioners are scheduled to vote on whether the U.S. industry is being injured as a result of the imported shrimp from these countries on February 7, 2013. Warmwater shrimp from Brazil, Ecuador, India, China, Thailand, and Vietnam are already subject to antidumping duties.
