Start Preamble


Foreign Agricultural Service, USDA.



The Administrator of the Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) today accepted and began a review of a petition for trade adjustment assistance filed under the FY 2011 program by the New Hampshire Commercial Fishermen's Association on behalf of American lobster (Homarus americanus) fishermen who catch and market their lobster in New Hampshire. The Administrator will determine within 40 days whether or not increasing imports of American lobster contributed importantly to a greater than 15-percent decrease in the average annual price of lobster compared to the average of the 3 preceding marketing years. If the determination is affirmative, fishermen who land and market American lobster in New Hampshire will be eligible to apply to the Farm Service Agency for free technical assistance and cash benefits.
