Coastal Conservation Association (CCA), a non-profit organization, comprises 17 coastal state chapters spanning the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic and Pacific coasts. CCAs strength is drawn from the tens of thousands of recreational saltwater anglers who make up its membership. From South Texas to the upper reaches of Maine to Puget Sound, CCA's grassroots influence is felt through state capitols, U.S. Congress and, most importantly, in the conservation and restoration of our coastal marine resources.
