Known for their beautiful and unique spot patterns, spotted eagle rays fill key roles in the marine ecosystem. As both predators and prey, they eat animals such as clams and conchs, while also being eaten by large sharks. Worldwide, more than one-quarter of marine rays are threatened with extinction from targeted fisheries, bycatch and loss of habitat.

Advocate Apparel Inspired by the spotted eagle ray (Aetobatus narinari)

It is illegal to fish for or kill this beautiful and charismatic ray in Florida waters, however they are not protected under federal laws and international protections are limited as well. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), an organization that establishes the conservation status of species worldwide, lists them as near-threatened with a decreasing population trend.

In some countries, spotted eagle rays are harvested as food and are caught as bycatch (unintentional catch in commercial fisheries that target other species). Spotted eagle rays also face a variety of threats from habitat loss, harmful algal blooms, and entanglement in fishing gear. These threats, combined with their extremely low reproductive rate, make these rays vulnerable to population declines. To help create better conservation management plans for this species, Mote and other research institutions are defining the distribution, migration, feeding habits, growth rates, and reproductive biology of spotted eagle rays.

Good material , great fit

Great feeling fabric and vibrant prints

I received the eagle ray patterned shorts in a size 33. My first reaction was that the fabric feels luxurious, with a nice structure to it. The second was that the pattern really pops. It’s a really nice looking board short. I also appreciate the drawstring closure and the zippered pocket. I haven’t had a chance to see how it holds up to sea water, but every indication is that it will

Gave me major "good girlfriend" points

Got this for my boyfriend who is obsessed with rays- he loves it! We did have to return to go down a size, but the return process was totally painless. Good product and good concept.
