Welcome to Georgia’s Coastal Resources Division Website

Coastal Georgia is a region rich in history, beauty, mystery and natural wonders. Cultures have mixed here for ages, just as the rivers mix with the sea. With its large tidal ranges, vast salt marshes and picturesque barrier islands, coastal Georgia has drawn people throughout history.

The Coastal Resources Division is the state agency entrusted to manage Georgia's coastal marshes, beaches, waters, and marine fisheries resources for the benefit of present and future generations. The Division's service area extends from the inland reach of the tidal waters to three miles offshore.
