This paper mainly studies the relationship between China's marine economic growth and financial structure. Based on the data analysis from 2001 to 2019, there is an inverted U-shaped nonlinear effect between China's loan, bond, stock financing and marine economic growth, so there will be an optimal scale of loan, bond and stock financing in China. In addition, from the perspective of financial asset structure, the results also show that the marketization of financial structure can promote the growth of marine economy. Therefore, China should control the scale of indirect financing mainly by loans and direct financing mainly by bonds and stocks within a reasonable range, so as to promote the rapid and healthy development of marine economy.
