  • Stakeholders no longer wanted to rely on third-party organizations for consumer insights as they never quite fit the specific needs of the business or their partners
  • Small research studies couldn't provide the proper tracking of long-term trends over time

Target Audience



  • It was decided that the best solution to these specific challenges was a consumer insight portfolio including an ongoing monthly consumer tracker, later to be named the 'Seafood Consumer Index"
  • aytm's assisted DIY team was able to work with The Fishin' Company to build a multi-wave tracking study targeting seafood consumers with limited ongoing budget
  • From there, The Fishin' Company's team was able to clone and launch their survey themselves in a matter of minutes, not hours or days



  • A better understanding of seafood consumer taste profiles, purchasing habits, and more
  • These insights have been valuable to share with retail partners to communicate consumer desires, demands, and concerns
  • The Fishin' Company can now stand apart from their competitors as leaders in a commodity industry
