Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the legal status of the Taiwan Strait and the feasibility of enforcing "generally accepted international rules and standards" (GAIRS) in the area. It discusses the topic of vessel source pollution and protection of the marine environment, and points out two small islands on the western side of the Taiwan Strait: Jinmen and Xiamen. The Taiwan Strait situation can be discussed in four legally meaningful parts. One is the territorial sea waters area along the Chinese mainland coast and around the Taiwan islands and the Penghu Islands. The second part is the internal waters around Jinmen, Wuqiu and Matsu islands. Part three is the Penghu Channel internal waters area between the Penghu Islands and the coastal shore of Jaiyi County of the Taiwan Islands. Part four is the Economic Exclusive Zone (EEZ) area in between the territorial sea waters measured from both Taiwan Island and China's mainland.

Keywords: economic exclusive zone (EEZ) area; generally accepted international rules and standards; Jinmen; marine environment; Penghu Channel internal waters area; Taiwan Strait; territorial sea waters area; vessel source pollution; Xiamen
