Educational resources & donation included with every purchase. Learn more.

The coral reef ecosystems that cover our globe provide essential food and habitat to over 25% of all marine life. The parrotfish is a common animal found among these ecosystems and are a crucial keystone species, responsible for cleaning the corals from harmful algae. The abundance of parrotfish can be related directly to the health of our coral reef ecosystems.

Advocate Apparel Inspired by the spotted parrotfish (cetoscarus ocellatus)

While parrotfish come in many amazing colors and patterns, this print is inspired by a male, terminal phase spotted parrotfish, native to the Indo-Pacific. Considered the most effective reef grazer, parrotfish serve an important function in maintaining the health of coral reefs. In fact, a 2014 IUCN report surveyed the health of Caribbean coral reefs from 1970-2012 and found that one of the most impactful actions we can take to restore the health of coral reef habitat is to protect parrotfish!

If that isn’t reason enough to love these bright and beautiful fish, an individual poops up to 200 lbs of sand a year, a critical source of sediment for beaches! For example, in Vakkaru Island in the Maldives, a 2015 study found that over 85% of their beach sand had been produced by parrotfish!

It fits great!

I really am happy with this purchase! The fit is great and the material is really comfortable. My only wish is that you offered front zip options and kids sizes! I definitely will purchase another if you come out with a front zip style. I'm excited to try out your legging options too! Great product for sure

Absolutely love this suit!! Trying to decide which one I want next!!! THANK YOU WATERLUST!!!

The best surf suit I've found so far, but...

The reason for 4 stars is I don't like the back bottom and how it flattens my bum. This is my 2nd purchase and as with the first one, I'm gonna take it to a seamstress to add the rouching on the bottom back, to make it look more flattering and more comfortable.

I want to love it

I want to love this suit but I can’t. It looks horrendous on the bum, it cuts into my cheeks as the cut isn’t high leg enough at the front/sides for the style of cut. I don’t know how the model in medium has it fit her because we are the exact same shape and it gives me 4 bum cheeks. I had no choice but to dive it as I didn’t have a wetsuit and stupid me didn’t try it on ahead of time. Luckily I had the leggings to cover up but I need to look into getting this tailored for a brazil cut.
