Abstract 
 
We empirically test whether the investigation and impositions of U.S. antidumping duties in 2004  on  imported  shrimp  distorts a  named  country's exports to third markets. We constructs a panel of bilateral, disaggregated product-level data for annual trade flows of subjected shrimp  between the six named countries (Brazil, China, Ecuador, India, Thailand, and Vietnam) and  four major importers (EU, Indonesia, Japan, and Malaysia) between 1999 and 2010.  Our results show that named countries’ trade flows were reoriented to other destination markets when U.S. anti-dumping duties were levied against their shrimp products.
