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.
