Short summary
The ongoing increase in anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions is changing the environment. Reduction of CO2 to a sustainable level is required to avoid further change. In this manuscript, the carbon storage potential of coralline algae (CA) and their deposits is accessed. We show that CA represent an as yet unquantified significant carbon repository, storing similar amounts of carbon to seagrasses and mangroves. Critically, stored carbon will likely be stable at geological timescale.
