Something fishy

Two Cambodian companies evaded American duties by importing live catfish from Vietnam,

turning them into fillets, then shipping them to the United States, the US Commerce

Department says.

"Frozen fish fillets made in Cambodia from Vietnamese-origin whole [fish] should

be included in the anti-dumping duty order on frozen fish fillets from Vietnam,"

the Commerce Department said in a statement published in the US Federal Register.

The duty, imposed in 2003, is 81 percent. The two companies were the Lian Heng Trading

Company and Lian Heng Investment Company.
