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!

Kathryn Saunders (Busselton, WA, AU)

I love my parrot fish swim suit. Lots of people said positive comments about it. The only thing I dont like about it is that . As I wear a C-Cup bra normally and there is not support there ,it makes me feel a bit self conscious. Otherwise , a thumbs up from me.

Randi Clawson (Forney, TX, US)
Love it

Exactly, EXACTLY, as pictured. And comfortable

Maureen Smithey (Carlotta, CA, US)
Love it!

Excellent quality. Fabric is thick and seems like it will hold up for a long time. Zipper is sturdy as well. I used the suit in Southern Mexico everyday and never got a burn! I also really liked not having to wear so much sun screen. Better for me and the ocean! I’m 5’7”155 lbs. D cup. The top potion of the suit fit a bit snug but was still manageable to wear for many hours.

Catherine Upton (Sydney, NSW, AU)

Annina Müller-Bodmer (Zurich, ZH, CH)

very happy and very fast delivery

Athletic women need room

I am an athlete, swimmer, surfer, with shoulders and back to show for it. I love this suit, the colors are amazing and the arm length and thumb holes are great. The shoulder/back upper body dimensions are NOT for an athletic build. I do not have a big bosom so thats not a factor. The armhole circumference is the first clue that the upper body dimensions need attending to.
