Abstract: Previously considered as mysterious without limit because little known, arousing respect and admiration, the world ocean constitutes an immense reservoir of food and energy resources on which the world population bases its hope to fill its deficits in the face of its development ambitions and its demography. galloping. To achieve this goal, man must face all the challenges associated with the exploitation of the ocean's mineral, energy and biological resources. This requires perfect mastery of the laws of this environment, in-depth studies to be carried out, and the use of modern techniques and technologies, based on adapted methods and principles, framed by international laws and conventions. The Montego Bay Convention of 1982 devotes its article 76 to the rights of coastal States wishing to extend their continental shelf beyond 200 nautical miles. This deep desire results from the obsession of States to enlarge their territory; which is the manifestation of the power to protect, conserve and radiate over maritime areas still untouched by any influence, and whose geological and geomorphological characteristics are identical to those of the territory of the State concerned. This power is expressed by its reinforced presence on the high seas, by virtue of the rights which allow it to carry out protection activities and exploitation of the seabed. To this end, the Republic of Guinea attaches great importance to the delimitation and extension of its continental shelf given the economic and strategic challenges of this area. It has all the assets to achieve this.
