Abstract: Based on CGE model which contains marine natural resources and marine infor-mation, Shandong Province is taken as an example to study the impact of marine ecological compensation, GDP, residents income, enterprise income, government income and residents welfare under different scenarios by using basic data from SAM. Firstly, the result shows that marine ecological compensation can be increased by increasing four exogenous variables, which are transfer payments rate from enterprise, transfer payments rate from residents, value-added tax rate, and transfer payments rate from government. The increase of transfer payments rate from enterprise has the most effect on marine ecological compensation, followed by the increase of transfer payments rate from residents, then the increase of value-added tax rate, and the increase of transfer payments rate from government has the less effect. For example, if four exogenous variables increase by 10% respectively, marine ecological compensation can increase 1.824%, 1.417%, 1.083% and 0.097% respectively. Secondly, the result shows that although increasing value-added tax rate can significantly enhance marine ecological compen-sation, it will cause an obvious negative macroeconomic effect that it leads GDP, enterprise income and residents’ welfare level to drop significantly. Thirdly, the result shows that the increase of transfer payments rate from residents, transfer payments rate from enterprise, and transfer payments rate from government each has less negative effect on macroeconomic than that of value-added tax rate. Finally, the result shows that the marine ecological compensation multipliers of marine natural resources supply, labor supply and economic capital supply are all positive (0.571× 108, 0.002× 108 and 0.002× 108 yuan, respectively), which means increasing the three types of primary production factors will all cause the enhancement of marine ecological compensation during the production.
