ATTENTION UPPER BAY & BLACKWATER ANGLERS!!!Keep an eye out for tagged Northern snakehead and report any tagged fish that you catch. This tagging effort will provide important information to Maryland DNR and USFWS to better understand the habits and growth rates of snakeheads in their ever expanding range. Thanks to our friends at Engel Coolers, one lucky snakehead angler will win a 19 qt dry box cooler with rod holders, a perfect accessory for any shore, kayak or boat based angler. Stand by for more prizes were happy to throw into the mix for anglers who support this important scientific effort. Don’t forget, the Great Chesapeake Invasives Count is under way, and is another way that anglers catching invasive species can report their catches and win! https://news.maryland.gov/dnr/2022/05/24/tagging-s...

“It will be extremely difficult – if not impossible – to rebuild striped bass stocks without reducing fishing mortality and protecting spawning-sized fish, especially given the very troubling recruitment trends of the past few years,” said David Sikorski, executive director the Maryland Chapter of Coastal Conservation Association.https://www.ccamd.org/alarms-sounding-over-future-...

Thanks to a number of great partners, more reef habitat has been "splashed" in the mid-bay at the Tilghman Island Reef Site. This deployment was overseen(and photographed) by DNR's Maryland Artificial Reef Initiative Coordinator Mike Malpezzi.
The purpose of Coastal Conservation Association Maryland is to advise and educate the public on the conservation of our marine resources. The objective of CCA is to conserve, promote, and enhance the present and future availability of coastal resources for the benefit and enjoyment of the general public.
Along with our national, state, and local partners we work to promote a resource-first and science based natural resource management system. As anglers, we focus on what is best for recreational fishing and work to promote abundant and well managed fisheries.
Working to enhance and restore marine habitat is paramount to the success of our conservation efforts. In Chesapeake Bay, the oyster population and submerged aquatic vegetation coverage are all time lows. These habitats are the very foundation of life in the region.
The purpose of CCA is to advise and educate the public on the conservation of marine resources. Our educational efforts vary, but it our hope that through working with CCA Maryland, you will learn something new. Whether it be tips and tricks on that you can use on the water, motivation to change the way you participate in a fishery, or taking part in a hands on activity to improve the health of our waterways by building habitat or removing trash.
We welcome all to take part in CCA Maryland activities and know that knowledge is truly power in the world of conservation, and the best lessons are often learned from each other.
