Spanish term or phrase: aguas marítimas
Looking for the exact term in maritime law.

If "mar territorial" = "territorial waters", what is the distinction in comparison to aguas marítimas?

Some examples:

...de cualquier otro Estado miembro afectado por una investigación llevada a cabo a raíz de un accidente que haya ocurrido en aguas marítimas españolas...

...o accidentes marítimos ocurridos fuera de las aguas marítimas españolas...

...y que penetren en una zona no situada en el mar territorial español pero sí en aguas marítimas españolas...

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Explanation:
Maritime waters covers a broader area than territorial waters. Maritime waters are divided into territorial waters, and different countries have jurisdiction over the territorial waters.
