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!

No problems

I bought the sunscreen pants probably year ago. Now I've Added the matching top. Everything was well made. I got the small top and it fir perfectly. (I am 5'8" and weigh 120 lbs.) I love that it has pockets and that it has good neck coverage. Of course I love that the products use recycled plastic and are shipped with minimal packaging.

I love my Parrot fish hooded top and I'm keen to purchase the shorts because they have pockets albeit no way of securing keys 🗝️ ( I lock my car Keys in my car and use a small one to hand lock and open the door) The pockets need is a little Velcro to secure them, even if it's just on one of the pockets?

Comfortable, soft, but durable, great for hiking and other outdoor activities. I have three and I wish they would make them in a bunch more prints!
