Yes it was on Sunday night and the reefs are a protected chain of mangrove islets off the southern coast of Cuba. Most striking for me were the number of sharks and other predatory fishes. Of course on the downside they did film a lot of lionfish too.

Came across this promo and thought it might
be of interest to some.
"60 Minutes cameras take viewers on an underwater
adventure to one of the world's most vibrant coral
reefs. But as Anderson Cooper reports, reefs like
these are dying and could disappear".
Watch Cooper's report on Sunday, Dec. 18 at 7 p.m. ET/PT.
Don't really know what the segment's true message
will be since I haven't seen the entire piece, but
the description is encouraging. The YouTube preview
features an encounter with goliath groupers.
I'm assuming that the Gardens of the Queen reef
where this was filmed is in Cuba? If it is, I hope
they mention the fact that the lionfish shown are
not a natural part of the ecosystem.
