“In preparation for the proposed tariffs, we have raised our prices. Since doing so we have seen a significant decrease in sales. The size of these tariffs increases our cost dramatically, making it impossible to absorb, and as such we have to pass this cost along to our customers. The products we offer have no relation to the unreasonable trade practices that the recent USTR investigation found China’s government engages in. We are a small business, and the factories that we work with are similarly small in scale. Reef Breeders LLC has dedicated a great deal of time and resources in building a USA based warranty service and distribution center in Wakefield, RI USA. These new tariffs jeopardize our operations and could very well cause us to go out of business.”
