COASTAL CONSERVATION ASSOCIATION


COASTAL CONSERVATION ASSOCIATION

Coastal Conservation Association Texas (CCA Texas) is a non-profit marine conservation organization comprised of tens of thousands of recreational anglers and coastal outdoor enthusiasts. Founded in 1977, CCA started in the great state of Texas and has grown incredibly to a national organization. CCA Texas has enacted positive change on all levels of coastal marine conservation and management, including a state net ban, gamefish status for speckled trout and redfish, bycatch reduction for Gulf and bay shrimp trawls, flounder conservation measures, limited entry into commercial fisheries, and Gulf fisheries management initiatives. CCA Texas has been engaged in hundreds of local, state, and national programs and projects related to marine conservation, such as initiating scientific studies, supporting local marine law enforcement, working to pass pro-resource legislation, funding marine science scholarships, initiating habitat-restoration projects, funding state-of-the-art hatcheries, and fighting for quality and quantity of freshwater inflows for coastal bays & estuaries.
