Our Mission

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.

Marine Science Camp

John Duren Marine Science CampUGA MAREX MARINE SCIENCE SUMMER CAMP
FISHING FOR FUN June 27 – July 1

This week of Marine Science Camp, the focus was fishing for fun for 36 very interested 11-12 year old campers. They first received a short on-shore demonstration of rigging tackle and safe fishing techniques. Then, for three days they went out in boats with six campers and two staff or volunteer leaders in each boat. John Duren of CCAGA helped them plan the fishing experiences and helped the young anglers on one boat each day. Happily, every camper caught at least one fish and most caught a lot of fish. Sharks, whiting, and rays were the most common fish caught but there was lots of action. Since it was a catch and release experience, catching fish was more important than the species so expectations were exceeded for every camper. There were lots of smiles as the campers learned about sport fishing and how it relates to sound ecological practices.

First Catch

Rick Cunningham and Dave Devore went out on Vic Vaccaro’s boat July 11th. First stop – netting bait shrimp – the best catch of the day, and we had shrimp left over when we returned 5 hrs later!

In this pic Vic releases the first catch of the day. Both Vic and the skate were happy to be separated. Shortly after that he hooked into a nice sea trout who came home for dinner. Rick and Dave picked up their fish at Publix on the way home! Note that the Joe’s Cut FAD (fish attraction devices) are visible above the low tide line in the background of this image – we were there at dead low tide so didn’t get to cast towards the area..
