About the fact sheet

Australia's Oceans Policy is the country's proactive stance for the future of our marine environment.

Launched in 1998, the International Year of the Ocean, the Policy is a framework to deal with the complex issues confronting the long term future of one of the world's largest Exclusive Economic Zones.

Australia's Exclusive Economic Zone is 11 million square kilometres, twice the country's landmass.
