Marine economy in China should with more quality and effectiveness, which is a new requirement for the development of marine economy under the new normal context background. Based on panel data of marine economic growth quality in the Bohai Rim region from 2000 to 2014, the spatial weighting matrix based on marine economy-space distance function is established to discuss spatial autocorrelation of marine economic growth quality for coastal cities in the Bohai Rim region from 2000 to 2014. By mean of the space Durbin model, this paper studies spatial spillover effects and influence mechanism of marine economic growth quality for coastal cities in the Bohai Rim region, which also make a deterministic of the subject’s spatial and spatial effects. The results show that, 1)The marine economic growth quality of coastal areas in the Bohai Rim region from 2000 to 2014 is spatially correlated but with significant heterogeneity, and the differences of marine economic development in coastal areas have become increasingly significant. 2)The spatial Durbin model shows that the spatial autoregressive coefficient is positive and significant. There is a positive feedback effect of the space spillover for marine economic growth quality. Among the influencing factors, contributions to local marine economic growth quality with direct effect are: Marine environment>Marine industry>Marine talent>Marine capital>Marine science and technology, other mechanisms have no significant effect on local marine economic growth quality. Contributions to neighborhood marine economic growth quality with spatial spillover effect are: Marine infrastructure construction > Marine talent>Marine capital. The research provides some reference for the formulation of targeted and differentiated marine policies in the Bohai Rim region.

Key words: marine economic growth quality, spatial spillover effects, SDM, the Bohai Rim region
