How much marine biologists get PAID


Many people want to know how much marine biologists get paid, as in how much the make, salary-wise doing their job. I give you my take in this video, but it’s important to not that this VARIES a lot among jobs, institutions, and locations (e.g., cities, countries, etc.). There are MANY ways to be a marine biologists, and a scientist in general. I’d say my answer is coming from an academic perspective (i.e., jobs in universities), but there are great jobs outside of academics that I have less knowledge about (e.g., jobs with federal agencies and NGOs, like NOAA [in the US] and NOAA). Just remember one thing: money can’t buy happiness. But a career you love (no matter your field) can get you pretty far! 🙂
