Chapter Summary

The Treaty does not establish the regime applicable to the Argentine and Uruguayan maritime waters and their bed and subsoil, which are regulated by the universality of the law of the sea, but sets forth the method to divide the maritime zone and creates a common fishing zone. The Treaty does not provide the geographical co-ordinates that determine the starting point of the boundary line but by applying the methodology used for the maritime lateral limit, it sets forth the procedure that will enable its future marking. With regard to the maritime spaces and navigation, at the moment of adopting the Treaty there was a different regime in the domestic legislation of each riparian. Unlike the CARP, the goal of the Joint Technical Commission for the maritime zone centres on the exploitation of the living resources of the common fishing zone.

Keywords: Argentine maritime water; common fishing zone; maritime front; riparian states; treaty provisions
