Foreign Agricultural Service, USDA.
The Administrator, Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS), today accepted a petition, and began a review of a petition, for trade adjustment assistance by the Catfish Farmers of America on behalf of U.S. farm-raised catfish producers. The Administrator will determine within 40 days whether or not increasing imports of catfish contributed importantly to a greater than 15 percent decrease in the national average price of catfish compared to the average of the 3 preceding marketing years. If a determination is affirmative, U.S. producers who produce and market farm-raised catfish will be eligible to apply to the Farm Service Agency for technical assistance at no cost and cash benefits.Start Further Info
