A fishery scientist studies fish in rivers, lakes and oceans to maintain or restore habitats of fish. In many cases, these professionals work for conservation organizations and state or federal government agencies. As a part of their day to day work, they do following activities:



  • They go outdoors - to the lakes and similar water bodies to collect the specimen and make their observations.








  • Once they collect the speciment, they perform various tests on them. They also test water quality, habitat, and the environment for the fish.


  • They also have to study the effects of environmental changes on the fish and therefore they stay in touch with the related news from the science world.


  • Once they are done with the outdoors work, they come back to their laboratories and do their experiments.


  • They conduct their experiments and note down the observations and findings that they have made.








  • Based on their observations, they prepare comprehensive reports and make them available to the government and private agencies.


  • They coordinate with the environmental groups and assist them in preserving the environment.


  • They work with their team members and maintain a regular contact with them even while working outdoors.


  • The profession is wonderful for those who enjoy being close to the nature, traveling and conducting zoological research.
