China Trade Tariffs affect USA Seafood Imports

Tags: , ,


The United States imports more than 90 percent of its seafood.
The U.S. also exports seafood, but there is a big trade deficit, as the U.S.A exported about 5.5 billion dollars of seafood last year, and imported nearly four times that amount.

Many of those imports come from China.

Approximately 3-billion dollars’ worth of those Chinese seafood imports are now subject to ten-percent tariffs, scheduled to rise to 25-percent in January.

The biggest single seafood import item from China is frozen tilapia. Seafood suppliers in the USA knew the tariffs were coming, and bought up extra inventory in advance. U.S.A importers boosted their tilapia supplies by 6-percent in June and July compared to a year earlier.
