N THE closing days of 2015, CCA SC and its reef partners, South Carolina Department of Natural Resources and the Building Conservation Trust (the national habitat program of CCA), deployed the fourth nearshore reef in the habitat program’s short history. A de-commissioned 56-foot Navy landing craft has been added to the growing list of destinations for Palmetto State recreational anglers. Deployed off the Beaufort/Hilton Head Island portion of South Carolina’s coastline, this project rep- resents another step toward CCA SC’s vision of placing new reef material within easy access to anglers along the entire coastline of the state within the habitat pro- gram’s first five years.


“These fishing reef projects, along with more than 60 oyster reefs for habitat and a $100,000 in oyster recycling equipment, really speaks to the complete effort that CCA SC represents for our marine resources and recreational anglers,” said Mike Able, CCA SC Government Relations Committee chairman and one of the founders of the Topwater Action Campaign. “This program is having a big impact on fisheries habitat and recreational angling opportunities, and that will increase in the next 12- 14 months. CCA SC is fully commit- ted to continuing these projects.” Visit CCA SC, SCDNR, and BCT websites to find specifics about this project as well as other projects con- ducted under the Topwater Action
