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 Fiscal Year 2011 program by 3 tilapia producers on behalf of tilapia producers in Arkansas. The Administrator will determine within 40 days whether increasing imports of tilapia contributed importantly to a greater than 15-percent decrease in the average annual price of tilapia, quantity of production, value of production, or cash receipts, compared to the average of the three preceding marketing years. If a determination is affirmative, producers who produce and market tilapia in Arkansas will be eligible to apply to the Farm Service Agency for free technical assistance and cash benefits.
