    Yeah you could work at some pbulic aquarium that'd be cool, or if you're good at designing tanks you could work for one of those companies that set-up tanks

    Marine biology.....That would about cover it..... ;) :D


    Also, check your local zoo. I know ours has volunteer program. Perhaps there is a similar program in a zoo near you? It may parlay itself into a job.....I know of a person who is very knowledgable about snakes and reptiles. He volunteers at the Zoo on weekends and takes care of the reptile house.

    Most public aquariums have volunteer programs. Maybe if you volunteered while you went to school it would give you an opening to ask for a job ;)

    My wife has a friend from work who's husband is a big saltwater hobbyist. His filtration system is amazing and he's got one room dedicated just to that. It's a trickle system with protein skimmers, replenishment tanks, the whole bit. It's pretty impressive.
