A good marine environment is the basis for the development and utilization of marine resources. Marine environment monitoring is an important part of marine environment protection. Therefore, the research on the marine environment monitoring technologies is of great significance. In order to realize intelligent monitoring of the marine environment, combining with the sensor technology, 4G communication technology and Zigbee communication technology, this study designed a marine environment monitoring system based on the Internet of Things (IoT). The system is composed of three parts: the information management subsystem, the data collection subsystem and the monitoring terminal subsystem; the structural composition and main implementation technologies of each subsystem are elaborated and the functions of each module in the system are tested by experiments. The test results show that, the IoT-based marine environment monitoring system can realize the functions of collecting, receiving, sending, analyzing, processing, querying and releasing marine environment data. This study provides a technical support for China's marine environment monitoring, and has important theoretical reference value for the research of intelligent marine environment monitoring in China.
