For over a decade, National Geographic Explorer, marine biologist Tierney Thys, Ph.D has been uncovering the secrets of the Mola mola – the world’s largest bony fish. By tagging and tracking molas worldwide, she and her colleagues are discovering their movements, eating habits, and vulnerabilities.
