Exclusive Economic Zones (EEZ)

Under the law of the sea (Third United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, concluded in 1982), an Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) is a sea zone over which a state has special rights with regards to the exploration and use of marine resources. We provide links between EEZ, FAO divisions and countries.
