The Ocean Research & Conservation Association (ORCA)
ORCA is working to change the way information is obtained and presented. Monitoring and mapping pollution are the best ways for us to understand all of the attacks on our diverse water habitats so we can find the right solution for each environmental challenge. By using the science-based technologies that ORCA has developed to identify pollutants, they can be controlled or eliminated and nature can be restored.
Part of the proceeds from this event will go to help support the research ORCA is conducting in the Indian River Lagoon. Lines in the Lagoon funds and participates in the Citizen Scientist Fish Monitoring Project which studies the transfer of toxins from the Indian River Lagoon to humans and animals.
Coastal Conservation Association of Florida (CCA Florida)
CCA is a conservation association working on behalf of recreational anglers and their interests. The organization supports many habitat restoration projects including the establishment of a marsh grass planting program that increases the frequency of the current mangrove planting projects in the Indian River Lagoon.
CCA provides many of our tournament prizes and support for our event.
