What’s It All About?
People working in fisheries science explore a variety of subjects, from counting fish and studying life cycles, to investigating what affects oceans and streams. Work may involve boating, fishing, computers, SCUBA diving, working in a lab, managing others, teaching, and travelling. Government agencies, First Nations and tribal councils, and private companies (like environmental consulting firms) hire workers in fisheries and oceans science.
Some scientists work in universities and colleges where they do research and teach students. Others make a career out of researching alone. Ongoing education is important in fisheries science if you want to advance beyond the technician level.
