Scale: 1:12,000,000 Spain's straight baselines pertaining to the Canary Islands (1977). Scale: 1:3,850,000 Spain's “perimeter” delimiting “Canarian Waters” (2010). According to Spain, this perimeter does not alter the straight baselines promulgated in 1977. Scale: 1:3,850,000 Maritime limits and boundaries of Spain. The map depicts Spain's maritime boundaries, claimed EEZ limits, and limits reflected in Spain's submissions to the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf. The northernmost continental shelf outer limit point has been recommended by the Commission in its 2009 recommendations pertaining to the and Bay of Biscay (France, Ireland, Spain, and United Kingdom). Scale: 1:25,000,000 Fishing zones In the Mediterranean, there are four countries, namely, Algeria, Malta, Spain and Tunisia that have claimed fishing zones extending beyond their . In 1994, Algeria claimed an (zone de pêche réservée), beyond its territorial sea and adjacent to it, whose extent 32 nautical miles from the western maritime border and Ras Ténés and, 52 nautical miles from Ras Ténés to the eastern maritime border. Malta has claimed a 25-mile exclusive fishing zone since 1978. However, because of the geographical features of the area, the northern boundary of the Maltese fishing zone falls short of 25 nautical miles. In 1951, Tunisia claimed an exclusive fishing zone that is delimited for about half of its length by the 50-m . Use of this criterion to delimit a maritime zone is unique in international practice. Because of the shallow waters in the region, the external limit of this fishing zone is a line the points of which are located, in certain cases, as far away as 75 nautical miles from the Tunisian coast and only 15 nautical miles from the Italian island of Lampedusa. The Tunisian fishing zone encompasses the rich bank called Il Mammellone (“the Big Breast”), which has traditionally been exploited by Italian fishermen and is considered as an area of the high seas by Italy. More recently, Spain, by Royal Decree No. 1315/1997 of 1 August 1997 as modified, claimed a 37-mile wide fisheries protection zone measured from the outer limit of the territorial sea. The fisheries protection zone is delimited according to the line which is equidistant () from the opposite coast of Algeria and Italy and the adjacent coast of France. No fisheries protection zone is established in the Alboran Sea, off the Spanish coast facing Morocco. Interestingly, it was argued, in the preamble of the Royal Decree, that extension of jurisdiction over fisheries resources beyond territorial waters was a necessary step to ensure adequate and effective protection of fisheries resources. In Spain's view, maintenance of the status quo, which was already characterized by excessive exploitation…
