BoatWiki - Definitions

Definition


A exclusive economic zone (EEZ) can be described in nautical terms as the coastal waters of a country which extend beyond its territorial limits. This is an area where special rights are conferred upon the respective country with regard to fishing, drilling, and other commercial or economic activities.

Meaning


The EEZ is authorized by the United Nations convention regarding the law of the sea. In the United States, this area typically extends 200 nautical miles beyond its coastline which is typical for most countries.

Context


United States vessels that engage in commercial activities within the EEZ must be USCG documented along with the appropriate trade endorsements.

Conclusion


The EEZ is of concern mainly to commercial vessels and has no substantial impact on recreational boaters.
