Eligible coastal waters
Eligible coastal waters, in relation to a State or the Northern Territory, means so much of the scheduled area for the State or Territory as consists of any waters that are:
- on the landward side of the territorial sea; and
- not within the limits of the State or Territory.
For this purpose, assume that the breadth of the territorial sea of Australia had never been determined or declared to be greater than 3 nautical miles, but had continued to be 3 nautical miles.
