The Administrator, Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS), today accepted a petition filed by the Gollott's Oil Dock and Icehouse, Inc., Biloxi, Mississippi, for trade adjustment assistance. Gollott's represents Mississippi shrimpers. The Administrator will determine within 40 days whether or not imports of shrimp contributed importantly to a decline in domestic producer prices of more than 20 percent during the marketing year period beginning January 2003 through December 2003. If the determination is positive, all shrimp producers in Mississippi will be eligible to apply to the Farm Service Agency for technical assistance at no cost and for adjustment assistance payments.Start Further Info
