Date created: 30 July 2021
This date indicates the date the dataset metadata was created on Pacific Data Hub.

In Part 3 of the The Maritime Zones Act 2013 states that the exclusive economic zone of Niue comprises those areas of the sea, seabed and subsoil that are beyond and adjacent to the territorial sea having as their outer limits a line measured seaward from the baseline described in section 4, every point of which line is not more than 200 nautical miles from the nearest point of the baseline. https://www.un.org/depts/los/LEGISLATIONANDTREATIES/PDFFILES/niu_maritime_zones_act_2013.pdf

The Exclusive Economic Zone Outer Limit Notice 2013, No. 2013/2D states the relevant coordinates for the EEZ of Niue as well as outlining the various treaties that it shares with neighboring states. Most important is that it highlights the geodetic framework which sets the foundations of the baseline work. https://www.un.org/depts/los/LEGISLATIONANDTREATIES/PDFFILES/niu_exclusive_economic_zone_outer_limit_notice2013.pdf
