The Fair Carbon blue carbon project map allows easy discovery of publicly registered blue carbon projects across multiple voluntary carbon market registries.

Projects in development, undergoing validation and fully accredited are all shown. Pre-registration and concept stage sites are omitted unless the project proponent specifically requests inclusion.

To use this map: click on "View larger map", scroll to the project you are interested in and click on the project pin to view publicly available project information.

Where possible, links to credit retail outlets are provided. Fair Carbon does not endeavour to monitor which projects currently have credits available for sale or not.

For more information on the accreditation process, read Fair Carbon's guide to carbon offsets.





Blue carbon projects in all relevant ecosystems are included; however, only mangrove projects have been successfully registered and/or accredited at this stage. The display of only mangrove projects is not a fault with the map data. As blue carbon projects in other ecosystems are added to public registries, they will appear as the map is updated.

We manually scan the Plan Vivo, Verra, and Markit registries for any changes or updates. Project managers using other standards are able to register their sites for inclusion at the link below. If your project is registered and needs updating, please contact us at Last update: September 2022.
