SENATOR GARY  STEVENS, speaking  as chair  of the  Senate Special                                                               
Committee  on World  Trade  that sponsored  SJR  17, stated  this                                                               
resolution has  to do  with retaliatory  Chinese tariffs  on U.S.                                                               
seafood  products.  According  to the  Alaska  Seafood  Marketing

U.S. has  traditionally come from Alaskan  waters. Unfortunately,                                                               
market demand for Alaska seafood  in China has been substantially                                                               
damaged since  2018 when  China imposed  tariffs on  U.S. seafood                                                               
products.  For  example, the  tariff  on  Alaska pollock  is  500                                                               
percent  higher than  the  same pollock  that  is called  Russian                                                               
Alaska pollock.  SJR 17  seeks to  restore focus  on negotiations                                                               
with  China, ease  the tariff  war, and  right the  international                                                               
market in favor of Alaska seafood products
