The great thing about the Southeast is our environment, our natural resources and the coastal area. People rely on these resources not only for recreation but also for their livelihood.

It is the mission of the CFSC to bring awareness to the important issues facing the Gulf Coast and to ensure that everything is being done to protect it.


  • Freshwater and Saltwater Fisheries
  • Gulf Oil Spill
  • Protection of Ground and Surface Water Resources
  • Sustainable Development
  • Wise Stewardship and Use of Natural Resources
