Starting in 1995, Coastal Conservation Association Maryland (CCA Maryland) has worked to conserve, promote and enhance Maryland's marine resources.

From time spent in Annapolis lobbying for the responsible and sustainable use of our shared natural resources, to educating anglers on the issues that effect them.

We gain our strength through our many local chapters and dedicated volunteers, and rely on the grass roots support of our members and our many generous sponsors.


We engage in grass-roots, science based advocacy for the sustainable and wise use of Maryland’s marine resources.
