Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) of Louisiana, Chevron, Building Conservation Trust (CCA's National Habitat Program) and the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF), will begin construction on an enhancement of Point Mast Reef in Terrebonne Bay, south of Cocodrie.

The reef project, scheduled for construction in November or early December, will be the 22nd completed by CCA and our conservation partners in Louisiana. CCA completed their 21st reef project, The Vincent Matherne Reef in Western Lake Pontchartrain, in October.  All previous CCA Louisiana reef projects have proven to provide exceptional fish habitat, and are popular amongst recreational anglers.

The expansion to Point Mast Reef will consist of approximately 2000 tons of limestone spread adjacent to the existing reef site. CCA expects that the new material will expand the popular reef site by 2 to 3 acres.

Funding for the project will be provided through CCA’s Building Conservation Trust, Chevron, LDWF‘s Artificial Reef Development Fund, as well as in-kind donations and services from the other project partners.  Continued support of CCA’s habitat program is provided by the Paul Candies Family.

Once the construction timeline is finalized, a dedication ceremony and media site visit will be scheduled.
