Half of the world's coastal states are in the process of delineating continental shelf limits seawards of their 200 nautical mile exclusive economic zones. The paper briefly outlines this process and progress towards the finalisation of such limits. Key potential resource opportunities that may arise within the "extended continental shelf' areas are then highlighted and challenges in securing rights over these resources explored.
