Notice was published in the Federal Register today of the U.S. Department of Commerce’s (Commerce) Preliminary Results of the seventeenth (17th) administrative review of the antidumping duty order on frozen warmwater shrimp from India, covering shrimp imported into the United States between February 1, 2021 and January 31, 2022.

In the Preliminary Results, Commerce announced that the agency, following its investigation of the sales made by the two companies, has calculated a dumping margin of 1.43% for the Indian shrimp exporter NK Marine Exports LLP and a dumping margin of 7.93% for the Indian shrimp exporter Megaa Moda Pvt. Ltd. Based on these preliminary margins, Commerce preliminarily assigned the 185 other Indian shrimp exporters subject to the administrative review an antidumping duty rate of 3.76%.

These dumping margins represent an increase from those found in the preceding review, where one Indian shrimp exporter, LNSK Green House Agro Products LLP, was found to not be dumping and another Indian shrimp exporter, Royal Imports and Exports was found to have a 3.01% dumping margin that was also applied to the other 161 Indian shrimp exporters subject to the administrative review.

If maintained in Commerce’s Final Results, the 3.76% antidumping duty rate applied to all other exporters subject to the review would be the fourth highest “all others” rate assigned by the agency in the seventeen administrative reviews conducted of the Indian shrimp antidumping duty order.

Since 2013, India has been the largest supplier of shrimp to the U.S. market. In 2022, India accounted for nearly 40% of the total volume of frozen, non-breaded warmwater shrimp imported into the United States, with shipments valued at $2.8 billion.
