This paper reviews the past, present and future of the coastal and marine management in China through internet exploring and researcher interviews. The results show that the coastal and marine management in China is rapidly being improved recently despite of its short history of no more than 30 years. The largest characteristics of current coastal and marine management in China are the separation of the ownership and use rights of coastal and marine areas, and implementation of charge for coastal and marine uses that is based on a market mechanism. New trends in coastal and marine management in China lie in administrative collaboration, legal integration, IT application and public participation to reach good governance of coast and marine areas. All that are done in China are regarded good experiences and could provide important clues for integrated coastal and marine management in Japan.
