This article delves into the importance of marine restoration and examines various case studies of successful projects in this field. It explores the potential benefits of marine restoration for marine net gain (MNG) and carbon offsetting, highlighting how these initiatives can enhance biodiversity, support sustainable fisheries, and improve water quality. Additionally, the article considers the possibilities of restoring marine habitats within ports, demonstrating how such efforts can be integrated into urban and industrial environments. Finally, it discusses the challenges and limitations associated with combined MNG and carbon offsetting projects, providing a comprehensive overview of the obstacles that must be overcome to achieve these dual goals.
