ACTION:

Notice.

The Administrator, Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS), today accepted a petition, and began a review of a petition, for trade adjustment assistance submitted by the Southern Shrimp Alliance on behalf of shrimpers in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Texas. The Administrator will determine within 40 days whether or not increasing imports of shrimp contributed importantly to a greater than 15 percent decrease in the quantity of production of shrimp compared to the average of the 3 preceding marketing years. If a determination is affirmative, shrimpers who land and market shrimp in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Texas, will be eligible to apply to the Farm Service Agency for technical assistance at no cost and cash benefits.
