Career Technology

What is a marine biologist
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

Nature of work
Nature of Work

  • Collect Data.

  • Study characteristics of animals.

  • Give presentations on research findings.

  • Develop and conduct experimental studies with animals.

  • Estimate, monitor, and manage wildlife populations and invasive plants and animals.

Working conditions
Working Conditions

  • Marine Biologist work in offices, laboratories, and outdoor.

  • It is a mixture of both mental and physical work.

  • You may end up diving depending on the task or doing some experiments and collecting data.

  • Working full time (Irregular hours).

  • Working with Data, People and Things.

Training qualifications awards
Training Qualifications Awards

  • Bachelor’s Degree in the field of Biology heading further into.

  • Ph.D.

  • Students typically take zoology and wildlife biology courses in ecology, anatomy, wildlife management, and cellular biology.

  • I will go to Oakland University to further myself in the career.

Job outlook employment
Job Outlook / Employment

  • I want to find this career’s openings somewhere along the east coast.

  • There is no particular place that I would enjoy working at.

  • Slower than average employment Rate.

  • The employment rate is rising.

  • Competitive.


  • My lifestyle goals are; to be able to have my dream career, living along the coast (East/West) and making a decent amount of money.

  • $27.74 per hour ($57,710 per year)

  • My first purchase with these earnings would be towards food.

Micro Biologist

  • Microbiologists study microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, algae, fungi, and some types of parasites. They try to understand how these organisms live, grow, and interact with their environments.

  • 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.

  • Micro Biologists are projected to grow 7 percent from 2012 to 2022

  • The median annual wage for microbiologists was $66,260 in May 2012.

  • Max told me to be it


  • 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.
