Fishery science is all about understanding and managing fisheries. It is a multidisciplinary subject which includes biology & resource management , breeding , farming, conservation, genetic improvement , disease management , development of value added products, fishing technology & engineering , oceanography, marine conservation, ecology , aquaculture , biotechnology , farming and husbandry of important fishes and aquatic organism in fresh water and in any marine environment.

For any Confusion Regarding Career Paths – Take here: Psychometric Career Tests including Ideal Career Test.
To identify whether you have right interest and aptitude to be a fishery scientist , you are advised to get your psychometric assessment done. The psychometric assessment involves assessing the aptitude, interest and personality of a student using standardized psychological tests. The assessment can be given online or offline. t takes 75 minutes to 90 minutes to complete the assessment. Psychometric assessments are thoroughly assessed by psychologists and career counselors. After the analysis a unique career plan is generated for the student. A career plan highlights the key areas of interest, personality traits and high and low aptitude areas of student. A student is thoroughly guided by a career counselors on issues such as suitable subjects in class 11, suitable career options after class 12, scope of recommended courses etc. The student is also provided with various tips to improve their study skills. As sometimes in spite of having the required aptitude, interest and personality traits, the student finds it difficult to pursue a recommended career. One of the major reason in such cases is poor study skills of a student. During counseling, all academic concerns of student are taken care of.

Hello friend,

here you have not mentioned your academic qualifications and what you are doing at present. If you have opted biology in your 11 and 12 class then you should take any biology subjects (zoology, animal behavior, marine biology, aquaculture technology) in your graduation. In post graduation you should take either zoology (with specialization in Fisheries), Fish technology (some universities and institutes do offer this course). Technically speaking the person holding a post graduate degree in fishery sciences is a fishery scientist but a doctoral degree is must to get a decent job.
Fishery science is the academic discipline of managing and understanding fishes. It is the study of fish morphology, their classification, distribution, behavior, breeding, physiology in their natural habitat and in captive state of large aquariums.

Fishery Scientist

To know that you have an interest and aptitude to become a fishery scientist. First ask these questions to you:

Do biology subject creates interest in you?

Do you like to know more about fishes?

Are you willing to pay field visit to study fishes in their natural habitat?

Do you have inclination in molecular tools, that can be employed in studying fishes in detail


Do you spend time in reading and discussing about fish sciences and technology alone and with your friends.
If the answer of all the above questions is YES, then you have right interest and aptitude to become a fish biologist or Fish Scientist, here you have to be very realistic.
There are many colleges / universities and institutes which offer this course of MFSc (Masters in Fishery Sciences) and PhD programs.
For you information, I would also like to mention here that Fishery Science includes many sub disciplines, which are used to study for specialization, such as, Fish Breeding, Fish Nutrition, Fish Genetics, Fish Microbiology and Pathology, Fish Immunology, Fish Culture and Farming, Post Harvest Technology, Cold Chain Management, Fresh water and Marine Fishes.
If you still cannot decide, then you may undergo psychometric analysis test offered by Meracareerguide. This is scientifically proven test, and it will let you in which subject you have aptitude. You will guided by career counselors in detail and all your doubts will be cleared.
Hope I have answered your query, if you still have any doubt, please write back.


With all my best wishes,


Good Luck..
