Marine economic activities are mainly distributed in areas with extremely fragile ecological environment, rising sea level, rising sea surface temperature, ocean acidification and extreme weather events, etc. These activities have major impacts on the environment and ecosystems of fragile marine and coastal areas, posing a major threat to sustainable development of marine economy. This paper reviews recent researches on the impact of climate change on various marine industries. The results show that climate change has remarkable impacts on marine economy, and some marine industries are especially sensitive. There are both negative and positive consequences of climate change, but no doubt, the negative effects dominate. The government should take pertinent measures to mitigate the adverse effects of climate change.
