We explore and discuss the mechanism of the impact of digital economy on marine and green total factor productivity (TFP). We build a regulatory effect model by using the data of provinces and cities on the coast of China (11 in total) from 2009 to 2018 to measure the development level of the digital economy and marine green total factor productivity in coastal areas of China and evaluate the relationship between them. It is shown that the digital economy has significantly improved the marine green total factor productivity, and environmental regulation acts positively.
