Tierney Thys Speaker
Tierney Thys Speaker Profile
Since 2000, Thys and her colleagues have been traveling the worlds oceans to study the giant sunfish (mola). Though these fish can grow more than ten feet long and weigh over 5,000 pounds, little is known about them.
By placing high-tech satellite tags on molas and collecting mola tissue samples for genetic analysis, Thys and her colleagues hope to uncover their secrets: How did they come to occupy all tropical and temperate seas? Where, when, and at what size do they reproduce? How do they locate their jellyfish prey? Are there more ocean sunfish species yet to be discovered?
Thys was born in 1966 in California. As soon as she could walk, her parents slipped her into a homemade wet suit and tossed her into the surf. She has loved the water ever since.
When Thys graduated in 1988 with a degree in biology from Brown University in Rhode Island, she decided to dedicate her career to studying the ocean. Through a mutual friend in California, Thys met Sylvia Earle, who was helping design a winged submarine for ocean exploration.
