Chapter Summary

Most coastal States share a coast with other coastal States. It is then necessary to determine the lateral boundary between the maritime zones of each coastal State and the maritime zones of the adjacent coastal State(s). South Africa has two adjacent coastal States: Mozambique and Namibia. Moreover, in many instances, the distance between two coasts at the opposite side of a body of water is smaller than double the breadth of a maritime zone. It is then also necessary to determine the outer boundary of that maritime zone. The distance between the Prince Edward Islands and the French Crozet Islands is approximately 520 nm. There is therefore no overlap of the respective EEZs, but there is a need to determine the common boundary of the respective continental shelves.

Keywords: EEZ; France; maritime boundaries; Mozambique; Namibia; South Africa
