The Components of Territory
They are parts of the sea within the land territory. They are considered in the same light as rivers, canals, lake, and creek within the land territory of the State and sometimes called the national waters.
How is the Philippine Water Classified ?
It is belt of waters outside and parallel to the coastline or to the outer limits of the inland internal waters.
It is the part of the sea extending 24 nautical, miles from the low-watermarks. It is in this area where our law enforcers can board, inspect search and seize anything in the foreign vessel which may be found violative of our customs, sanitary and immigration laws.
200 miles exclusive economic zone
The part of the sea extending 200 nautical miles from low-watermark. It is in this area where preservation, exploration and exploitation of aquatic and other marine resources is reserved exclusively to Filipinos. The protection includes both living and non-living resources of the sea.
These are the waters that lie seaward of the territorial sea. The open seas are owned in common by all states of the world, so that no states can ever invoke its sovereignty over other states in this area.
