This paper discusses policy issues on the delineation of municipal waters in the Philippines. It also discusses policy implications in relation to the actual implementation of the guidelines on delineating municipal waters in the coastal areas of the country. The study argues that the root of the problem stems from the deficiency of the definition of municipal waters in RA 8550 or the Philippine Fisheries Code of 1998. The viable solution is for the country to adapt the archipelagic principle in charting municipal waters. Furthermore, the preferential rights of municipal fishers to municipal waters should be recognized and respected in order to realize the objective of sustainable development as espoused by RA 8550 and RA 8435, the Agriculture and Fisheries Modernization Act.
