The scope of coastal waters of Catalonia corresponds to that defined in the Administrative Framework (Chapter 1), following the definition contained in Article 2 of Directive 2000/60/CE. Thus, the scope of coastal waters extends from the coastline to the line located one mile away from the baseline that is used to determine the jurisdictional waters of the Spanish State, which is established in Royal Decree 2510/1977. In the stretches of the coast where the baseline deviates considerably from the shoreline, the scope of coastal waters includes inland waters (autonomous competence) and also a mile of territorial waters (or jurisdictional, state competence). On the coast of Catalonia, 50% of the baseline coincides with the coastline, and the other 50% is far from distances ranging from 3 miles (north of Cap de Creus, Maresme Sud, Barcelonès and Alcanar), at 9 miles (in the Bay of Roses) and at 11 miles (basins south of Cap de Salou).
