To become a marine biologist, you need a lot of education. As a marine biologist, there are many salary and job opportunities in the job, and the work environment is very pleasant. As a marine biologist I will study the saltwater ecosystem. I will work outside at times and in a lab at other times. I will have to work on some projects including ones that involve DNA and genetics.
Oceans are a noisy place. Marine biologist use sound recorders to record sounds made by marine animals, marine biologist analyze the sounds. Marine animals can be tracked by the sounds they make. Personal characteristics that are mandatory when being a marine biologist include having patience, curiosity, and interest in the ocean. A marine biologist is always learning so you must have an interest in whatever you're researching or studying about.
Hammerhead sharks are found in ecosystems in temperate and tropical oceans. They live in these types of oceans, because if it was a colder climate they would die from hypothermia and soon the species would become extinct. These sharks like to stay in schools up to 100 in numbers. The reason they stick together is there is more protection in numbers and they can kill bigger prey like big great white sharks. Next Hammerhead sharks gets there name for its flat shaped head and some people think it is useless to the shark.
However, I caught a 42 inch shark in Florida (saltwater) which took me 20 minutes to reel in, and that is considered a small fish. They both have unique characteristics that make them completely different things. I’m going to prove that all fishing is not the same, saltwater and freshwater fishing are different sports based on dangerousness, cost, species, bait, and boat type. Most people assume fishing is a safe and easy hobby, however, fishing can actually be a dangerous activity. Saltwater fish have the potential to pull you into the water, bite you, or even sting you.
Bass are a predatory fish, this means that they have to eat other living animals to survive. To hunt, bass will hide in structure, such as a submerged log, or some grass and ambush their prey. When their prey swims by the fish will swim out quickly and eat the food. Bass will eat anything that swims, they will eat minnows, crawfish, frogs,worms and even mice and ducklings that fall into the water. Bass will also eat other fish and sometimes lizards that fall into the water.
Hollywood has dramatized many shark films to depict sharks as bloodthirsty, flesh tearing, soulless predators that roam the seas scouring for juicy, innocent humans to feast on. Bull sharks are known to be one of the most aggressive sharks; however, shark attacks are extremely rare averaging only sixteen per year (National Geographic News). Most of these attacks are also due to the fact that most sharks have poor eyesight and easily get confused between humans and other ocean wildlife. Sharks are much more than sea monsters slashing through the water. They are beautiful, fascinating creatures that have many interesting characteristics.
Red Tides affect the marine and land life in various ways, the most important of which are listed below 1. Effects on human life: i. Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning (PSP): This happens if fish contaminated with Alexandrium species is consumed. It majorly affects the nervous system and in many cases leads to paralysis. In extreme cases, the paralyses may affect the respiratory system and ay result in death. ii.
The movie “Jaws” is actually why a great number of people are afraid of sharks. This movie has also greatly impacted great white sharks and their numbers. The movie created this false notion that great white sharks were human-killers that wanted nothing more than to eat humans. Because of this false notion there was a lot of hatred formed and lots of fisherman were targeting the great whites. There was even “shark tournaments”.
After the movie Jaws came out people thought it would be macho to go and hunt sharks. There would be killing tournaments to see who could get the biggest shark. The biggest shark that was ever caught was a 20 foot long great white shark. People are also overfishing sharks. There is a huge problem with finning for shark steaks or shark fin soup.

Most people love fishing despite being named a lazy people’s hobby. Notably, fishing is not measured by the number of fish caught, but rather the challenge and satisfaction that comes with it.
in marine biology. I am interested in working with marine mammals, with an emphasis on pinnipeds. I hope to go to work either for a government agency or private company as a researcher and eventually transition into marine policy. My interests include the ecology and conservation of marine mammals. I believe it is important to look at the ecosystem as a whole when doing ecological studies.
