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!

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.

Sublime sunsuit

I love this sunsuit. Originally I bought it for a diving trip, but I’ve found it is perfect for paddle boarding, surfing, and overall sun protection. It is really comfortable!

Great Quality, Great Customer Service!

This beautiful suit arrived quickly but was the wrong size. The representative who responded was quick to respond, able to send out a new size before receiving the return and very personable and kind.

Excellent craftsmanship and color

This has been my dream suit that I have lusted over for a few years. I have been on a weight loss / health journey and decided it would be my gift to myself for getting to mt goal. The suit is incredibly well made and unlike Amazon knockoff rash guard suit you can actually zip this one up by yourself with a well-made zipper and pull. The arms are reinforced and triple stitched, the thumb holes are perfect. I love this suit and can't wait to rock it all summer!

Stitching in sleeves became undone after 4 scuba dives

While this is very comfortable and looks great in the water the stitching is becoming unraveled quickly on the sleeves. I wrote an email to them about it with no reply. I absolutely love this suit and hope the stitching issue can be remedied

Hi Megan! So sorry to hear you had an issue with the construction on your suit! We pride ourselves on our customer service, and were really surprised to hear you didn't get an answer, so we just searched high and low for an email from you and can't seem to find anywhere that you reached out. Regardless, we see you have an account with us, so we have your email address and will send you a message right now to get you taken care of!

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
