Transcript of Marine Biologist

Education and Training
Education wise, a marine biologist takes a lot of time in school and in studying time. Through high school, you would need to take biology, microbiology, botany, chemistry, oceanography (which is rarely found in high schools, this class is optional, but highly recommended), and science. In college, you need to major in marine biology, biology, chemistry, botany, science, and oceanography. In those majors, you would need to get your doctoral degree or a master’s degree. A master’s degree will score you a job, but not a high-of-ranking job as if you got a doctoral degree. In your own time, you would need to study some things marine biologist might need to know. They need to know how to read DNA charts if you want to study animals and plants, which most people do. You can study marine charts, which are basically like underwater maps, from what I have studied… correct me if I’m wrong. If you study all those subjects, you will be a very successful marine biologist.
Working Locations

Marine biologists work in different places constantly, on a ship, in a research facility, or in an office, it totally depends on what you study. If you are a marine biologist, you would travel everywhere, which means you never have a permanent home and can never settle down and have a family. You, as a marine biologist, can go anywhere from out-of-country visits to a research facility, to an underwater trip, which is something I would love to do. Primarily, you work and live in multiple locations.

What they do
Salary & Outlook
With the growing prices and pays of present day America, a marine biologist’s job is tough. And who says it’s not going to be worse in the future? A starting pay as a beginner marine biologist would normally be $31,000 to $56,000, which isn’t a lot. The highest pay for a very advanced marine biologist would be $94,000, which is a lot. These pays are annual, if they were weekly, I would be rich in the future… but unfortunately, it will not. A marine biologist’s job in an average job, which means that the outlook is growing as fast as the average job. In order to live with this job with growing bills, you either have to love the job to do the job, or really like this mermaid craze because of that documentary on Animal Planet (which I am a total skeptic of).
A marine biologist needs to be manipulative, scientific, and investigative. A marine biologist needs to be manipulative. Being manipulative will score you a very high reputation. You don’t want to be that one person who has a boring back story to an amazing find, you want an awesome backstory that woes your coworkers. It’s not lying; it’s just twisting the story. I have had the perfection ever since my little brother came along. You also need to be scientific, which goes hand-in-hand with investigative. You need to find every scientific facet for why something happened the way that it did. This is a good career for me because I am investigative, I am a boss at being manipulative, and love being scientific. Science is the best subject ever, in my opinion!
Pros And Cons
Such a unique job
Work with cool organisms

Most people know that a Marine Biologist studies the animals in the ocean. Well, the also study the plants in the ocean, make sure oil wells are up and running that don’t effect the environment. They also study disabilities of plants and animals, along with studying how animals have an effect on their environment and how the environment affects the plants and animals. They can train animals based on research. Normally, that would be an animal trainer’s job, but when no trainers are found, marine biologists come to the rescue. I met a marine biologist at the Seattle Aquarium that trained a seal. Normally, marine biologists study the ocean, but they also study plants and animals in rivers, lakes, and where the river meets the ocean.
Personality Fit
Doesn’t pay a lot of money first few years
Can get eaten by as shark or something along the lines of it,
on underwater adventures
