Higgins Requests Relief For Louisiana Crawfish Industry

July 11, 2023: United States Representative Clay Higgins issued the following press release:

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Clay Higgins (R-LA) sent a letter to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Troy Miller requesting the remaining anti-dumping duties that were established under the Continued Dumping and Subsidy Offset Act of 2000 (CDSOA) be distributed to the Louisiana crawfish industry.

“The crawfish industry is a vital part of Louisiana’s economy and culture. According to an LSU Ag Center study, the Louisiana crawfish industry is valued at over $517 million,” writes Congressman Higgins.

The letter emphasizes the harm that foreign seafood dumping has brought to the crawfish industry “Abusive dumping practices by China have caused significant harm to our producers, and the restitution owed to them is direly needed. Concerningly, CBP, between the years 2000 and 2014, did not distribute all anti-dumping duties received from Chinese imports.”
