Promoting Texas Gulf Seafood


Commercial fishermen harvest Gulf shrimp, blue crab, oysters and fish with the utmost care for quality control standards, seafood safety and sustainability practices. Fueled by hard work and the sea, their dedication plays a vital role in getting the premium, wild-caught seafood consumers enjoy from the Gulf to their plates. The market faces fierce competition from imports that are not wild caught and are generally less expensive. The goal of this campaign was to generate awareness of the wild caught options by leveraging an awareness campaign to create and launch a Texas Gulf Seafood consumer that promotes the Texas seafood species:

  1. Shrimp
  2. Oysters
  3. Blue crab
  4. Various finfish



The 360 digital campaign incorporated consumer insights and  was meant to generate awareness of Texas Gulf Seafood. We wanted consumers and shoppers to select a Texas seafood option before a non-Texas option. 



Developed a digital plan targeted to Texas seafood consumers who like to buy local and/or Texan seafood. Tactics included social media, digital display, video, digital TV streaming, and search engine marketing (SEM).

General seafood consumer. Adults 18+

HUB / American Business Survey / HB 5140 Report

Team Strategar has compiled a robust report looking at the FY 22 HUB report and the American Business Survey provided by the Census. There are some very compelling points on why H.B. 5140 should be thrown out of the committee.

Some highlights you don’t want to miss:

– 129,353 minority-owned companies are in Texas, but only 11,366 are registered HUBs
– Minority-owned companies are an economic engine for Texas, paying taxes and contributing $42 billion to the state’s payroll
– 73% of these businesses are considered small businesses (under $1 million in annual receipts)
– Likely due to criteria, including being a U.S. citizen, there were 16,528 Texas HUBs, in fiscal year 22 (this includes 4,866 non ethnic women-owned companies and 296 service disabled veteran companies)
