“With the proposed increased duties, our customers would not tolerate a price increase of the magnitude necessary to profitably sell cast nets. A 25% duty would increase our cost by 25% at a minimum with no allowance for increased labor and material costs, which the Chinese have threatened. Most importers can only assume 3-4% with no price increase. We believe that sales would drop 60-70% at a minimum because customers would buy for necessity only. That means that customers would repair and keep their nets longer.”
