Default Question about "Potential Shoals Area"

Playing the new FotRS UE which is amazingly good; very realistic feel.

In an S-boat on my 4th patrol in early August 1942, north of New Guinea in the Bismark Sea.

There is a 64.5 x 64.5 NM square area marked with red lines and "Potential Shoals Area" at the 141 - 142 degree E Long and 1 - 2 degree S Lat.

Anyone know what it is and what's it for?

i believe this is the area that has a series of small islands in a string from east to west. from a certain zoom level they appear to be morse code. i could be wrong because i cannot find the forum where the discussion took place and i do not have FOTRSU loaded up at the present time.
