How much can I make in a Career in Marine Biology?

I think Marine Biology is a great Career option. For me understanding Why I want to choose a Career in Marine Biology is phenomenally more important than figuring out How to get into Marine Biology. It had been a while since I was researching about a Career in Marine Biology, when I came across:

Career Video on Marine Biology

In a video, Anant Pande has talked about various aspects of a Career in Marine Biology. Anant Pande started by explaining Marine Biology as: "Marine biology is the study of marine organisms, their behaviors and interactions with the environment. Marine biologists study biological oceanography and the associated fields of chemical, physical, and geological oceanography to understand marine organisms." It was a very interesting video and I enjoyed watching it.

I found the video unique because it talked about Education in terms of things which can be learnt from books, to excel at a Career in Marine Biology and not as a list of Qualifications, which one needs to get into Marine Biology. Anant Pande touches upon these in the Education section of the Video:
  • Marine Ecology
  • International Conventions
  • Fisheries
  • Functional Role of Each Ecosystem
  • Marine Ecosystems
  • Formal Education
This Career demands specific Skills which only an experienced professional can lay out.
Anant Pande then explains why these Skills are essential for a Career in Marine Biology:
  • Patience
  • Critical Thinking
  • Alertness & Observation
  • Communication Skills
  • Computer Skills
  • Quantitative Skills
  • Scuba Diving & Snorkelling
  • Species Identification
  • Field Experience
It is important to get an understanding of the Positives of this Career.
Anant Pande believes that the following are some of the Positives of a Career in Marine Biology:
  • Skill Enhancement
  • Continuous Learning
  • Working with Charismatic Species
  • Developing Scientific Attitude

Challenges are the other side of Positives and this Career is no exception.
And, Anant Pande believes that one needs to prepare for following Challenges of a Career in Marine Biology:
  • Human Wildlife Conflict
