Local chapters help support research-based law enforcement and aid in the fight for and maintenance offshore regulations, aimed at protecting state and federal fish stock. To name just a few specific species that CCA Florida has helped and protected Redfish and a management plan was created for Dolphin and Wahoo. Part of the organization's history also consisted of a four month plan to help the Red Grouper stock recover, the CCA was successful in this fight.
