Striving to increase scientific knowledge on ecological aspects of the marine environment, and on the threats to ocean health deriving from human activities, is the core business of the Tethys Research Institute.
During its 30 years of operation Tethys has contributed substantively to the understanding of the ecology and conservation status of many species of marine vertebrates such as marine mammals and cartilaginous fishes, mostly in the Mediterranean Sea but also in the Red Sea and North Atlantic Ocean.
