'Open water' is the same term as 'international waters' and 'transboundary waters'?

Encarta says:
open water: 1. unenclosed water: an expanse of water that is not enclosed or obstructed

And hometravelagency says:
open water. Portions of the sea that are far from land in which a cruise ship might experience greater motion or rougher seas.
http://www.hometravelagency.com/dictionary/ltro.html

Here is the original sentence which contains 'open water':
"He spoke out against the indiscriminate German laying of mines in open water in 1914." _The History of WWI_

Thank you.

P.S. 'Spellcheck" did not like my word 'transboundary'. What is the matter with me, or you/checker?
