Artificially islands do not increase a countries' exclusive economic zone (EEZ). What applies to land reclamation projects that are contiguous with existing land, such as with the Maasvlakte in Rotterdam (The Netherlands)? Does the Maasvlakte extend the EEZ of The Netherlands, or does the EEZ only apply to the "natural coastline", however that may be defined?
