Shortly before the end of 2012, the Coalition of Gulf Shrimp Industries (COGSI) filed before the Department of Commerce (DOC) and the United States International Trade Commission (USITC) a demand for countervailing duties against Ecuador, among other countries.

The president of the National Aquaculture Chamber (CAN), Jose Antonio Camposano, explained that through this petition, which also affects producers in China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam, the American group denounces the existence of alleged subsidies that governments of these seven countries offer their shrimp farmers.

The Coalition argues that this would allow them to reduce selling prices in the U.S. market and, therefore, affect its national shrimp industry.

In this regard, Camposano said they are taking all measures to ensure the proper defence of the sector, newspaper La Hora informed.

As the news broke, the CNA contacted the Ecuadorian government to defend Ecuador from "an accusation absolutely devoid of truth."

"We have talked with Minister Santiago Leon, as well as with the ambassador Nathalie Cely, to act immediately, because the research phase has begun. We hope that working together with the Government will be reflected in a proper defence against this situation," Camposano added through Ecuadorinmediato.com page.
