If we as a population of vegans could somehow coordinate our consumer behavior towards a single specific product (I'm recommending the Daiya mac and cheese sauce), the increase in demand would warrant additional production facilities, potentially lowering the cost to be competitive with the animal product it's trying to replace, making it a more attractive option for vegan neutral institutions to make their switch... After something like a university or brand product changes their cafeteria or processing, we would want to coordinate on a second product
Targeting vegan seafood alternatives may produce a greater reduction in animals being harmed but it may also be less likely to succeed than targeting cheese or beef... needing someone to comment who knows more about the market
From the perspective of wanting to take out the largest source of animal exploitation/abuse/rights violations/etc. obviously we would want to target seafood alternatives, but that may be why we would need to wait, because there's such a huge supply, competing on price would be the longest and the most difficult of any product targeting campaign ... it seems to me like the much more likely scenario would be to first build up momentum targeting cheeses and meats... opting out of seafood seems like that can only ever be a conscious moral decision than it being some cost benefit analysis
