F, et al 2021). The purpose of this study was to determine the amount of biomass and the amount of blue carbon stock in the mangrove ecosystem in Mekarsari Village. Data was collected by plotting the area and taking the upper sample to determine the amount of blue carbon stock through the results of laboratory analysis. The results of the study based on data collection in the field, namely the mangrove ecosystem in Mekarsari Village has a total biomass value of 98.52 tons/ha and the total amount of blue carbon stock is 84.72 tons C/ha.
