Adjusting the Shelf

Give shelf-stable food sales a boost with some smart marketing strategies and solid sales tactics.

Driving Decor Sales

Cutesy ornaments may be top of mind when talking aquarium décor, but don't forget to play up other important categories that will drive sales and rouse customers' imaginations.

Surfing the Menu

Committing to live and frozen fish-food assortments means understanding the ins and outs of stocking and offering these important products to customers.

Retailers can hone in on the most profitable and customer-friendly assortment of reef-tank supplies by understanding the marine consumer's needs.
