Mr. Dugan, of course Israel does not own the Gaza territorial waters, but it continues to occupy them, and this has been going on since Israel left Gaza and even before the Hamas takeover. In the same way Israel continues to occupy the airspace over Gaza. The legal problem with this is that an occupation does not entitle Israel to extend a sea blockade over international waters (just the same as when a state prohibits entry into its own waters and cannot force ship to refrain from coming close to it but still in international waters). The solution: Israel claims that there is a state of war with Hamas, and so the blockade extending into international waters becomes legit (at least as far as the point I mentioned).
