The seascape of New Zealand’s ocean and continental shelf.

Made as part of my submissions for the #30DayMapChallenge. The map shows New Zealand’s sea boundaries as part of the submerged continent of Zealandia /Te Riu a Māui. These include the 12 mile Territorial Sea Boundary, the 24 mile Contiguous Zone and New Zealand’s Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).
