Foreign Agricultural Service, USDA.
The Administrator, Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS), today terminated the certification of a petition for trade adjustment assistance (TAA) that was filed by a group of shrimp producers in Florida certified on April 5, 2004. Florida shrimp producers are no longer eligible for TAA benefits in fiscal year 2005.End Preamble Start Supplemental Information
Upon investigation, the Administrator determined that U.S. imports of shrimp fell by 11.4 million pounds between 2003 and 2004, a decline of 2.1 percent. Therefore, imports were no longer a contributing factor for program eligibility. An increase in imports is required for re-certifying a petition for TAA.Start Further Info
