An outdoor career:
What does a Fishery Biologist do?
In this career, the person studies fish, protects and observes fish habitats, checks the fish health, and helps make fishing and hunting regulations and laws. A Fishery Biologist also has to write down data on fish and use special nets or other tools to count the fish population. There are some office positions in this career but mostly outdoor positions in lakes, ponds, streams, and rivers.
Why did you choose this career?
I choose a Fishery Biologist because I have a river behind my house and I love to catch and study the fish that are in that river. Their are also not many outdoor careers to choose from and I don't want to work inside all day. I think it would be fun to work in the different lakes, ponds, rivers, and streams.
