Conservation Zone Area

 

All of those waters of the exclusive economic zone in the Southern Ocean, and the seabed under those waters to a depth of 1,000 metres, contained within and bounded as follows*:      

 

 (a) the area bounded by the line:

 

(i) commencing at the point of latitude 51 degrees 50 minutes south, longitude 70 degrees 54 minutes east;

(ii) then along the geodesic in a generally north westerly direction to the point of intersection between the meridian of longitude 70 degrees 40 minutes east and the treaty line defined by Article 2 of the Maritime Delimitation Treaty agreed between the Government of Australia and the Government of the French Republic in January 1982 (the Treaty boundary);

(iii) then along the Treaty boundary in a generally north easterly direction to its intersection with the meridian of longitude 71 degrees 10 minutes east;

(iv) then along the geodesic in a generally south easterly direction to the point of latitude 51 degrees 38 minutes south, longitude 71 degrees 24 minutes east; and

(v) then along the geodesic in a generally south westerly direction to the point of commencement.

 

 

(b) the area bounded by the line:

 

(i) commencing at the point of latitude 52 degrees 57 minutes south, longitude 72 degrees 08 minutes east;

(ii) then along the geodesic in a generally north westerly direction to the point of latitude 52 degrees 25 minutes 30 seconds south, longitude 71 degrees 32 minutes 30 seconds east;

(iii) then along the geodesic in a generally north easterly direction to the point of latitude 52 degrees 12 minutes 30 seconds south, longitude 72 degrees 02 minutes 30 seconds east;

(iv) then along the geodesic in a generally south easterly direction to the point of latitude 52 degrees 43 minutes 30 seconds south, longitude 72 degrees 38 minutes east; and

(v) then along the geodesic in a generally south westerly direction to the point of commencement.

 

 

(c) the area bounded by the line:

 

(i) commencing at the point of latitude 50 degrees 57 minutes south, longitude 74 degrees 53 minutes east;

(ii) then along the geodesic in a generally north westerly direction to the point of intersection between the meridian of longitude 74 degrees 25 minutes east and the Treaty boundary;

(iii) then along the Treaty boundary in a generally north easterly direction to its intersection with the meridian of longitude 75 degrees east;

(iv) then along the geodesic in a generally south easterly direction to the point of latitude 50 degrees 57 minutes south, longitude 75 degrees 45 minutes east; and

(v) then west along the parallel of latitude 50 degrees 57 minute to the point of commencement.

 

 

(d) the area bounded by the line:

 

(i) commencing at the point of latitude 51 degrees 44 minutes south, longitude 75 degrees 27 minutes east;

(ii) then east along the parallel of latitude 51 degrees 44 minute south to its intersection with the meridian of longitude 77 degrees 13 minutes east;

(iii) then along the geodesic in a generally south easterly direction to the point of latitude 51 degrees 55 minutes south, longitude 77 degrees 29 minutes east;


(iv) then west along the parallel of latitude 51 degrees 55 minute south to its intersection with the meridian of longitude 75 degrees 35 minutes east; and

(v) then along the geodesic in a generally north westerly direction to the point of commencement.
