AFTCO and the Shedd family contribute at least 10% of company profits towards organizations and causes working to conserve our oceans, waterways, and fish populations while protecting angler rights and public access to these resources.

Coastal Conservation Association

The Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) works to protect not only the health, habitat, and sustainability of our marine resources, but also the interests of recreational anglers and their access to the resources they cherish. A vital component of that success includes working to restore saltwater habitat across the county. AFTCO’s 10% Pledge provides funding to the CCA for their grassroots saltwater habitat restoration efforts, which includes seagrass planting, oyster bed restoration, and artificial reefs projects.
