What is a Marine Biologist?
Marine biologists study fish and other wildlife that inhabits the oceans. They study the physical characteristics of animals, their behaviors, and the impacts humans have on wildlife and natural habitats. The oceans contain more than 97% of the total water on the Earth, and account for nearly 99% of the Earth's living space, owing to their area as well as depth. I became interested in this career field when I went deep sea fishing and caught some interesting fish. I will be researching: Nature of Work Working Conditions TQA/ Education Job Outlook Money/ Salary Related Occupations

Microbiologists work in laboratories and offices, where they conduct scientific experiments and analyze the results. Most microbiologists work full time and keep regular hours. A bachelor’s degree in microbiology or a closely related field is needed for entry-level microbiologist jobs. A Ph.D. is typically needed to carry out independent research and to work in colleges and universities.

Summary I look forward to pursuing this career in my life. From the information I have researched I learned what I can earn in this career, how many years of schooling is needed and much more. The one thing I look forward to the most is being able to work with marine life. One thing I look forward to the least is having to report all my findings and prepare presentations. I still would enjoy having this job because I still find it awesome.
