CCA of Georgia – Who We Are

CCA-GA is the Georgia affiliate of the Coastal Conservation Association, a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, with over 100,000 members. The objective of CCA is to conserve, promote, and enhance the present and future availability of our coastal marine resources for the benefit and enjoyment of the general public. On a local, state and national level, CCA initiates scientific studies, funds marine-science scholarships, builds artificial reefs, creates finfish hatcheries, monitors the quality and quantity of freshwater inflows, supports local marine law enforcement, helps establish game fish status for recreational species, supports pro-fisheries legislation, battles arbitrary no-fishing zones, seeks to implement bycatch reduction regulations and works to prohibit destructive commercial fishing gear.
