Antidumping duties collected on imports of shrimp entered into the country before October 1, 2007 are distributed through the CDSOA program.  Funds will continue to be distributed, in diminishing amounts, under the CDSOA program until all litigation regarding those shrimp import entries is resolved and final duties are assessed and collected by CBP.
