Biodiversity offsets are increasingly being used as a mechanism to mitigate impacts from economic expansion and development on species and ecosystems. Current offset research and policy are primarily focused on terrestrial ecosystems while marine offset development has lagged behind, despite a global increase in marine development and exploitation. Addressing this gap is crucial to providing better outcomes for marine species.
