Blue carbon is the billion-dollar resource you've never heard of

Mud and plants along the Bay of Fundy soak up 3-5 times more carbon than trees

The Bay of Fundy may soon be known for more than its powerful tides.

Instead, the plants and mud in the coastal ecosystem have the potential to hold hundreds of millions of dollars worth of carbon-offset credits.

Environment and Climate Change Canada is studying how much "blue carbon" is stored along the Bay of Fundy coastline. It has hired a team to measure the bay's potential for carbon sequestration.
