Supporting Responsible Marine Stewardship

At Boat Outfitters, we proudly partner with organizations that are dedicated to protecting valuable marine resources. The Coastal Conservation Association Network (CCA) is a national, non-profit marine organization that acts as an advocate for the sustainable health of coastal fisheries and for recreational anglers’ interests. The organization supports projects from coast to coast on local, state and national levels, ranging from funding marine-science scholarships to building artificial reefs.

The Florida Chapter of the CCA is one of 17 state chapters. Locally, the Orlando, Florida chapter has worked steadfastly to promote awareness of marine conservation topics through community involvement. For the past three years, we’ve shown our support for the CCA Orlando Chapter not only by becoming members, but also through donations and attendance at fundraising events. This year, we are excited to continue showing our support by attending their 20th Annual BBQ and Auction.

In addition, we will be donating the following awesome items to be auctioned off in an effort to raise both awareness and funds for the organization’s many noteworthy projects:

We invite you to join us at the BBQ and show your support for a great organization! For information on the event or to learn more about The Coastal Conservation Association of Florida, please visit their website at
