Lineage The Falkland Islands (Territorial Sea) Order 1989 defines the 12nm territorial seas around the Islands & how it should be measured. The Order is available as pdf on request and it has a schedule attached which lists 22 points around the Islands which are to be joined together to form the baseline. Any Islands that lie outside of this baseline (e.g. Jason West Cay, Beauchene Island, Eddystone Rock etc.) have their own territorial sea measured from the Low Water Line (these areas are not in the shape file). The Fisheries licences have a condition that states you are not allowed to fish within 3nm of the baselines formed by the above legislation & not within 3nm of the Islands etc. that lie outside of the baseline (e.g. Beauchene Island & Eddystone Rock) thus forming the 3nm limit for ???offshore??? fishing licences.
