This morning, the Federal Register published notice of the U.S. Department of Commerce’s (Commerce) preliminary results of the fourteenth administrative review of the antidumping duty order on frozen warmwater shrimp from India, covering shrimp imported into the United States between February 1, 2018 and January 31, 2019.
Commerce individually investigated one Indian shrimp exporter, Z A Sea Foods Private Limited, and preliminarily determined that the company was selling shrimp into the United States market during the review period at less than fair value, with a calculated dumping margin of 3.57%.
Commerce also preliminarily assigned a 3.57% dumping margin to the 180 other Indian companies that are also covered by the administrative review.
If maintained by Commerce in its Final Results, a 3.57% antidumping duty rate would represent the highest duty rate imposed on Indian shrimp since the fourth administrative review in 2010 assigned a 4.44% antidumping duty to one Indian company (the Liberty Group).
