Hi I will also like to become a marine biologist. Im in University.
And im currently persuing a double major in Biology and Environmental.
I took up some marine courses this year as well.
I also heard and read that its not good to persuing the marine biology
degree to early and better to specialise later on. I think it will
also give you 'time' to really see if it is something you will want to
do for the rest of your life. Lots of people realise only too late
that they are seasick or would not want to persue that field again.
I have also read that it is good to take up Biology, Chemistry and
other science subjects while in High School. At College level you can
even take up marine courses, or similar courses that will give you a
feel for the career path.
I do hope that I was helpful. bye!
