Geographic Area of Competence of South Indian Ocean Fisheries Agreement (SIOFA)

SIOFA's area of competence is bounded by a line joining the following points along parallels of latitude and meridians of longitude, excluding waters under national jurisdiction: Commencing at the landfall on the continent of Africa of the parallel of 10?? North; from there east along that parallel to its intersection with the meridian of 65?? East; from there south along that meridian to its intersection with the equator; from there east along the equator to its intersection with the meridian of 80?? East; from there south along that meridian to its intersection with the parallel of 20?? South; from there east along that parallel to its landfall on the continent of Australia; from there south and then east along the coast of Australia to its intersection with the meridian of 120?? East; from there south along that meridian to its intersection with the parallel of 55?? South; from there west along that parallel to its intersection with the meridian of 80?? East; from there north along that meridian to its intersection with the parallel of 45?? South; from there west along that parallel to its intersection with the meridian of 30?? East; from there north along that meridian to its landfall on the continent of Africa.
