Generating RESEARCH IMPACT TETHYS AQUACULTURE Limited is focused on generating impact from Aquatic Animal Health Research in order to support the fish farming industry to have access to innovative solutions and technologies on preventing fish diseases a major limiting factor for the sustainability of Aquaculture Industry.

TETHYS AQUACULTURE team has a unique blend of academic research experience and industrial excperience placing us in a perfect position to act as a bridge between the two.
Facilitating TECHNOLOGY TRANFER Aquaculture is the fastest growing Animal Health Sector facilitated by more than 40 cultured species worldwide, different farming environments (coldwater, temperate and warm water) and technological stages of industry development.

Various pathogens causes different level of losses and the industry is seeking alternative animal health strategies focused on diseases prevention. Rigid and inneficient legislative framework creates barriers and reduces the availability of solutions to the industry while lack of market knowledge often deters the pharmaceutical industry in developing innovative solutions
Bridging the GAP   Tethys Aquaculture Team has many years of experience in the aquatic animal health industry worldwide. Our unique blend of academic research and industrial experience provides an understanding of the philosophy, strengths and weaknesses of both the academic and industrial sectors and place them in a perfect position to act as a bridge between the two.  We observe industry trends and assist in the early definition of the industry research needs while we follow selected research teams with excellent applied research designs assisting in concept design, prototype development, upscaling and product development to ensure fast technology transfer, innovation uptake and industry feedback.

Tethys: The Ancient Greek Goddess

Tethys was the daughter of Uranus and Gaia, an Aquatic sea goddess, sister and wife of Oceanus , mother of the main rivers of the world known to the Greeks, such as the Nile, the Alpheus, the Maeander, and about three thousand daughters called the Oceanids.

How to maximise IMPACT

There is a number of key factors that are vital for generating impact. These include:

  • Established networks and relationships with research users
  • Involving users at all stages of the research
  • Well-planned public engagement and knowledge exchange strategies
  • Portfolios of research activity that build up reputations with research users
  • Good infrastructure and management support
  • Involvement of intermediaries and knowledge brokers as translators, amplifiers, network providers.

These factors relate to the process of generating impact, the context in which research messages are delivered and the content of research.
