New Zealand Territorial Seas

The territorial sea is the belt of sea adjacent to the coast out to a distance of 12 nautical miles from prescribed baselines over which New Zealand, as the coastal state, has the same rights of sovereignty that it exercises over its land territory subject to the right of innocent passage (and transit passage through any straits used for international navigation) of ships of other states. 'Innocent passage' excludes fishing activities.

New Zealand Continental Shelf

The continental shelf is the seabed and subsoil of the submarine areas that extend beyond the territorial sea of a coastal state throughout the natural prolongation of its land territory to the outer edge of the continental margin. In New Zealand’s case the continental margin extends beyond the EEZ in many places and the outer limits have been established on the basis of the recommendations of the United Nations Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf. Under UNCLOS, New Zealand exercises sovereign rights over the continental shelf for the purpose of exploring it and exploiting its natural resources.

Note: The boundary includes, where applicable, the delimitation of the boundaries of the continental shelf with Australia under the treaty of 25 July 2004. The delimitation of the maritime boundaries in the north with Fiji, Tonga and possibly France in respect of New Caledonia, have yet to be settled by treaty.
