Promoting sound use and conservation of ocean
resources through political action.
The Center for Coastal Conservation is a coalition of the leading advocates for marine recreational fishing and boating. It is dedicated to promoting sound conservation and use of ocean resources by supporting federal legislators who support its goals.
The health of America’s marine resources is under constant assault by numerous often-competing interests, such as commercial overharvest of certain species of fish. All of the nation’s coasts have been impacted — none has been spared.
While some groups propose draconian “solutions,” such as closing off public areas to all or most human activities, the Center was created to advance a balanced approach to conservation. The Center believes laws and regulations that provide for conservation of our marine resources can be – and must be – made compatible with responsible access to those resources.
