Biologists play an important role as experts in environmental conservation, fisheries management and aquaculture.
This ranges from understanding and managing the growth of species on land and in hatcheries, farms and river systems, to communicating the impact those operations will have on local surroundings.
They are responsible for the health and welfare of stock on sea and in fresh water.
Biologists must apply their scientific knowledge to monitoring the health of the aquatic species being grown and be able to recommend ways to improve efficiency.
Biologists often use different methods of analysis, including sampling surveys, water quality determinations, environmental impact studies and fishery operation inspections.
