And details for land-use carbon footprints arise from quantitative and replicated studies

Knowledge of carbon footprints of ecosystems is important for both consumers and policy makers. In spite of differences in experimental methods, mangrove composition/structure, and land-use approaches, our study and those referenced in Henriksson et al. conclude that the carbon footprint of shrimp arising from mangrove conversion is about the largest of any food that one can consume.
