The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) today determined that increased imports of crabmeat from swimming crabs are not a substantial cause of serious injury or threat of serious injury to an industry in the United States.
Commissioners Lynn M. Bragg, Marcia E. Miller, Jennifer A. Hillman, and Thelma J. Askey made negative determinations in this investigation. Chairman Stephen Koplan and Vice Chairman Deanna Tanner Okun made affirmative determinations.
As a result of today's vote, made under section 202 of the Trade Act of 1974, the Commission's investigation ends. The Commission will forward its findings in this investigation to the President by August 29, 2000.
A public report concerning the investigation will be available after the Commission submits its findings to the President.
