The sea has an important role in the global carbon cycle, about 93% of the Earths CO2 is circulated and stored through the sea. The sea, including coastal ecosystems, can store large amounts of carbon and over a relatively long period of time. Marine waters have 3 coastal ecosystems that include mangrove ecosystems, seagrass ecosystems and coral reef ecosystems. Indonesia coastal area with a seagrass area of about 30,000 km2, the second largest in the world after East Australia, is likely to have considerable capacity in storing CO2. Given the level of destruction of seagrass beds determine the condition of ecosystem then to determine the level of damage required standard criteria applicable in all regions in Indonesia. This study uses the standard criteria of KMNLH No.200 / 2004. Information on seagrass capacity as carbon storage is still limited, especially in Indonesia, so research on measuring carbon stocks on seagrasses is necessary and seagrass protection as carbon sinks and carbon sources in marine areas need to be re-constructed. Prospects for the protection of the marine environment especially seagrass beds are needed as an effort to protect the sea as carbon sink and carbon source. Indonesia in this case is entitled to pursue long-term strategic interests so as to clarify the role of Indonesia in the world marine fishery policy arena that is beneficial for the sustainability and sustainability of its marine resources. This study focusses on the sea as an absorber and release of carbon dioxide as a result of climate change that can provide protection against the sea through a new policy that must exist. This research method is with normative juridical research type with approach problem of statute approach, conceptual approach, and comparative approach. This study examines and manages the research data by tracing the efforts of establishing international law to the sea as carbon release and absorption and its implementation of the Indonesian marine territory. The result of this research is grouping of seagrasses as carbon sink and carbon source, mapping of seagrass-related sea area as absorbent and release of carbon dioxide, legal reconstruction to protect marine environment especially seagrass as absorbent and release of carbon dioxide.
