Have you ever been to Sea World to see the amazing Shamu shows? What about going to the ocean in hopes to see an enormous sea creature lurking through the water? Do fish astonish you by the way their bodies are created? How do they even live under water? This questions is going through your head and you’re wondering what the answer is. Marine Biologists study things like that along with how fish eat, and swim in their habitat. They discover new things in the ocean everyday! But how did they know they wanted to be marine biologist? What made them decide that that’s what they wanted to do with their life?

Marine biology is a very wide subject, so when you say you want...
