Q: I want to be a marine biologist but then I heard about an oceanographer.

A. Bing it!
"difference between oceanographer and marine biologist"
or
look up "oceanographer" and then "marine biologist@
i think an oceanographer studies oceans and a marine biologist does more with the biology of marine life. The animals and plants.
How much money does a Marine Biologist make?
Q: I want to be a Marine Biologist, but I’m just wondering how much they make, say, every year?

A. marine biologist salary range is between USD 36,000 to 45,000 depending on the place the marine biologist is hired. A marine biologist with the work experience of above 2 years and less than 5 years, can earn anywhere between USD 45,000 to USD 57,000. For candidates with 5 or more than 5 years of work experience, the marine biologist salary is between USD 60,000 TO 70,000. A marine biologists who has been in the field for nearly about 15 to 20 years, can earn more than USD 100,000.
What kind of degrees are required to become a marine biologist?
Q: So i have this project for science and i have a couple questions.What types of degrees are required to be a marine biologist? Locations of technical high schools, colleges, or universities? Long term career options? Initial salaries and long term salary options? what are some "perks"? Job out look or employment for the future? Related jobs in the field? Working conditions positive and negative? Thanks! you are a huge help!

A. The degree to become a marine biologist… is well a marine biology degree >_> Its like a whole bunch of biology degrees and a statistics rolled into one

For highschools i haven’t really heard of any specifications in marine biology… usually its only basic sciences (biology, chemistry etc.)

For universities, theres quite a few that offer marine biology programs, in canada i know of U of BC, Guelph and Dalhousie

Long term career options are just being a marine biologist, doing research and perhaps even becoming a professor at a university? Theres also a lot of government work oppotunities in marine biology.

Initial salaries are probably close to an oceanographer’s which are $40,000 initial and they can get up to $100,000 with a masters degree

Perks are getting to spend a lot of time out on the water, lots of opportunities to scuba dive and see some pretty amazing things =P Not to mention, if you like some sorta marine animal, you get to spend a lot of time with it =)

For the future expect MANY jobs in the marine biology feild (or any environmental feild for that matter) With issues like climate change and pollution becoming such a big deal, there will be plenty of job openings

For related jobs some of them that i know of are oceanography, botany, bio-chemistry, cellular biology, ecology, statistics etc. (theres a lot that you can find with a quick google search)

Working conditions are all relative… i suppose if you like being on a boat and in a lab, then the working conditions are good =) However the boat life can be pretty sucky at times with cramped quarters and whatnot
