DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE
Foreign Agricultural Service
Trade Adjustment Assistance for Farmers
AGENCY: Foreign Agricultural Service, USDA.
The Administrator, Foreign
Service (FAS), today terminated the
certification of petitions for trade adjustment assistance (TAA) that was filed
by salmon producers in Alaska and Washington. Salmon producers in these states
are no longer eligible for TAA benefits in fiscal year 2006.
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Upon investigation, the
Administrator determined that the average salmon prices during the 2004
marketing year was $0.343/pound, which is 85 percent of the base 5-year average
price. During that same marketing year, imports declined by 1.4 percent.
Therefore, the average price for the most recent marketing year was not less
than 80 percent of the average price for the base period and imports were no
longer contributing factors for program eligibility.
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jean-Louis Pajot, Coordinator, Trade Adjustment Assistance for Farmers, FAS, USDA, (202) 720-2916, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dated: October 6, 2005.

Administrator, Foreign Agricultural Service.
