Seahorses for sale at the night market, Kota Kinabalu, Borneo

The seahorse is used in traditional Chinese herbology, and as many as 20 million seahorses are caught each year and sold for this purpose.

Import and export of seahorses has been controlled under CITES since 2004. However, Indonesia, Japan, Norway, and South Korea have chosen to opt out of the trade rules set by CITES.
