I think I have seen that last season. I believe it refers to the 
reefs around the Philippines where the little seahorses live and
the attempt to save them from extinction by being sold to the 
Oriental medicine markets. They are trying to retrain the local
fishermen to conserve them and create sanctuaries. Interesting but
kind of sad. Hated to tell you this but I don't want people 
mistaking one for the other. I could be wrong but I don't think so.
The Philippine waters are nearly fished out of everything, too
many people, the seahorses are income to them.
