JACKSON, Miss. (WCBI) – Senator Thad Cochran Friday welcomed a U.S. Department of Commerce antidumping decision that will give farm-raised catfish producers in Mississippi and the nation some relief from unfair, low-priced foreign imports.

Undersecretary of Commerce for International Trade Francisco Sánchez on Friday afternoon informed Cochran that the U.S. Department of Commerce had completed its latest antidumping duty administrative review on frozen fish fillet imports from Vietnam and found that the U.S. catfish industry has been harmed by unfairly-priced imports.

The Commerce Department will now take action to enforce an antidumping order against frozen fish fillets from Vietnam.

A 2011 Government Accountability Office reported the lack of sufficient food safety inspections for imported seafood, including imported catfish.

Only about 2% of imported seafood is currently inspected.
