Short summary
Our results show that Finnish eelgrass meadows are minor carbon sinks compared to the Danish meadows, and that majority of the Corg produced in the Finnish meadows is exported. Similarly, the estimates for Corg accumulation in Finnish meadows were over 1 magnitude lower compared to Denmark. Our results further showed that > 40 % of the variation in the Corg stocks was explained by sediment characteristics. To clarify the role of seagrasses in global carbon budget, more studies are in urgent need.
