Six countries dumping shrimp, prawns in US, commission says

WASHINGTON - The U.S. International Trade Commission on Tuesday decided that imports of frozen and canned shrimp and prawns from six countries are being sold in the U.S. below fair value and pose a threat to the U.S. industry.

The commission's unanimous decision means the Department of Commerce will continue to conduct its anti-dumping investigation of shrimp and prawn products by Brazil, China, Ecuador, India, Thailand and Vietnam. A preliminary determination is due around June 8.
