You don't have to live near salt water to help us conserve our coasts.
Who We Are
The Coastal Conservation Association is a dynamic organization with more than 200 local chapters and 100,000 members nationwide. CCA was founded by saltwater anglers to help conserve, promote and enhance the availability of coastal and ocean resources and habitat for present and future generations.
Bridging Coast and Country
Since early 2014, we have worked diligently to establish and advance CCA’s first non-coastal state chapter in Nashville. Even though we may not reside on the coast—we do treasure our coastal and ocean resources and saltwater fishing. Part of that love is actually participating in the sport, but another component is sharing the passion for saltwater fishing and our love for the coast with family, friends and others…and perhaps, giving back a little along the way.
