“Ocean Beauty will be negatively affected by denying access to the China domestic market due to tariffs. However, it is the tax on the import of US produced product that has only been further processed in China, that threatens the future profitability of the Alaska salmon business the most. The USA has been an excellent market for our value-added products. We fear they will• now be replaced with fish caught and processed in other countries because it will be a more attractive price point that we can afford due to these new tariffs. Your immediate attention to this matter and granting hardship reprieve from these tariffs is both critical and essential. Thousands of jobs in Alaska, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, New Jersey, Oregon and Washington are awaiting your favorable decision.”
