The U.S. International Trade Commission has upheld an order against dumping of certain frozen fish fillets from Vietnam, a move described by an Alabama congressman as a victory for catfish farmers.

U.S. Rep. Artur Davis of Birmingham said it is important that farmers have an opportunity to compete with foreign producers on a level playing field.

The commission voted unanimously Monday to continue the trade protections. In May, Davis led a bipartisan coalition in support of the anti-dumping rules.

Mississippi and Alabama are the country's top catfish producers.
