In order to speed up the building of a strong ocean state and to identify and improve a series of major problems arising in China's ocean legislation, this paper starts from the concept of ocean legislation, takes the current situation of China's ocean legislation as the research object, studies and concludes that China's ocean legislation lacks a legislative concept, a basis for a superior law and a systemic nature, as well as the problem of weak operability of the legislation. Therefore, China should formulate a superior law on the oceans as soon as possible, take the concept of a community of maritime destiny as a guide, improve the new path of global ocean governance, continuously improve China's maritime legal system and realise the rule of law on the oceans.
