How would I prepare for this profession?
What would the typical day as a marine biologist be like, and what are some unusual tasks they may sometimes do?
The completely amazing thing about a career in marine biology is how much variation there is in employment. A typical day as a marine biologist can range from hours of diving on beautiful reefs, sampling the ocean from boats /ships, or even teaching undergraduate students or postgraduate students about the wonders of marine biology! However because of the general popularity and importance of this job, some marine biologists may appear on T.V. as well. Also, if a marine biologist reaches a maximum of credibility and recognition, a marine biologist may also be asked to do research for a prestigious institution.
