Response from Dr. Veal:

“The American Shrimp Processors Association welcomes any recognition from the Trump administration of the significant problems caused by the trade imbalances of imported seafood. The $4.5 billion trade deficit from shrimp alone has had devastating impacts on communities in the Gulf and South Atlantic regions for the last two decades. Any effort to reduce the trade deficit is appreciated by those who make their livelihoods in the domestic shrimp industry and their associated communities.”
