Dear friend, you have not mentioned your educational qualifications. The fishery scientist could be a person holding a masters degree or doctoral degree in fishery science. Therefore, the salary will depend upon the educational qualifications. The typical salary of a fishery scientist along with educational qualification also depends upon the place of work. The place of work will be government sector (colleges / universities / research institutions), private and multinational companies and non governmental organization.

Fishery science includes the management and preservation of fish populations in reservoirs, lakes, streams, rivers, oceans or aquaculture facilities. Fishery scientist might manage sport, and commercial fisheries, or fish hatchery operations, teach aquatic biology at college or university level and work towards the balance of aquatic ecosystem.

The typical entry point salary of a fishery scientist in colleges, universities as lecturer. assistant professor will be Rs. 15600-37100 + academic grade pay (AGP) of Rs. 5400. The same salary

Fishery Scientist

also goes for the assistant scientist working in research institutions. This salary structure increases with experience and promotion. The fishery scientist working at the level of professor will get salry in pay scale of Rs. (approx) 37400-67000 + AGP of Rs 10,000 per month. The salary of a fishery scientist (after masters degree) working as technical person or Senior Technical Assistant will get staring salary in the pay scale of Rs. 9300-34800 + AGP of Rs. 4800 per month.

The salary in private companies and multinational companies also vary. The salary depends upon the qualification as well as the experience of a person. The salary ranges from Rs. 45000 to Rs. 1,50,000 per month.

In USA the typical salary of a fishery scientist is around $54000 per annum. Here the marine biologist or wildlife biologists also work as fishery scientist, therefore the salary of a fishery scientist is equal to a biologist. The biologist work in federal government earn little more around $ 73000 per annum. The fishery technician at entry point earn about $20,000 to $30,000 per annum. The person holding a bachelor degree makes an entry at $30,000 to $40,000 per annum. The person holding an advanced degree may earn up to $ 50,000. Moreover, the salary structure also depends upon the place of work and type of education a person has.
Besides salary, there are other benefits also. The person who work for full time as fishery scientist or biologist is entitled to get all benefits. The benefits includes the retirement money, health care, education benefits. In private companies the benefits vary with the employer.

With all my best wishes,

Good Luck
