Iridescent blues, metallic silvers and golden copper hues flash and reflect the light as a sailfish shifts its colors with it’s changing mood. Specialized, pigment containing cells within the skin called chromatophores and iridophores receive signals from the nervous system, resulting in a startling display of colors from what many consider to be the fastest fish in the sea.

Advocate Apparel Inspired by sailfish (Istiophorus)

Sailfish (Istiophorus), also known as billfish (along with swordfish, marlin, and spearfish) are characteristically known for their elongated nasal bones which form the “bill”, and their dorsal fin (known as a sail) that stretches the length of their back. Their aerodynamic bodies and long bills are built for speed, and many consider them to be the fastest fish in the ocean. This speed, agility, and dynamic nature make them one of the world's most renowned sportfish for recreational anglers.

Our purpose in creating this print is to tell the story of these fish and capture some of the iridescent colors that make them so special. As one of the ocean's top predators, they play an important role in the ecosystem and as prized sportfish they sustain important recreational fisheries, making them both economically and culturally important. We believe fishermen (and women!) can be some of the strongest advocates for the ocean and the species that inhabit it. Our Tag & Release Sailfish print represents this exciting species and promotes responsible fishing practices.These include tag & release fishing and minimizing the stress experienced by a fish while caught. Continued research, education, and responsible policy management benefits both sailfish populations and the recreational fishing industry that advocates for them.

I’m hooked!

I have been eyeing the sailfish set for a while and finally bought it when I saw it was not going to be continued. The material is lighter and more comfortable than I thought and fits me perfectly! I cannot wait to wear my new gear on trips :)

Pattern Fabulous!

This pattern is just beautiful in person and I wish that there were more products using this fabric. It is the most underrated fabric at Waterlust and it is as fabulous as the creatures that it is modeled after!

I have the sun suit, and this is my first pair of leggings. Absolutely love them and feel so good supporting this brand for their quality and values.

I absolutely love my new leggings. Super comfortable both in and out of the water, fast drying and great sun protection.
