AGENCY:

Foreign Agricultural Service, USDA.

ACTION:

Notice.

The Administrator of the Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) today accepted and began a review of a petition for trade adjustment assistance filed under the Fiscal Year 2011 program by the University of Rhode Island on behalf of American lobster (Homarus americanus) fishermen who catch and market their lobster in Rhode Island. 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 production value of lobster compared to the average of the three preceding marketing years. If a determination is affirmative, fishermen who land and market American lobster in Rhode Island will be eligible to apply to the Farm Service Agency for free technical assistance and cash benefits.
