A maritime nation is any nation which borders the sea and utilizes it for any of the following: commerce and transport, war, to define a territorial boundary, or for any maritime activity (activities using the sea to convey or produce an end result).
The Netherlands and Japan are examples of maritime nations while fishing is a common maritime activity.
