Fish biologist salaries are soaring, with the majority of the jobs in the North Atlantic Ocean region expected to increase significantly in the coming decades.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced in June that fishery biologist salaries in the U.S. were expected to rise by 5 percent in the next decade.
A large majority of these jobs will be in the fisheries business, with only a handful of jobs in other industries.
In the past, fishery biologists were often considered to be lower paid, but new data from the US Census Bureau shows that fishers will be earning significantly more over the next three decades.
About one-third of the 1,400 fishery scientists working in the United States are currently in the $50-to-$60,000-per-year range, according to the bureau.
The bureau projects that in 2023, the fishery will earn $1.3 billion more per year than it does now, with an average salary of about $51,000.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that average hourly earnings for fishery and fisheries workers will increase by 7.5 percent, from $19.90 to $23.80 in 2027.
This means that a fishery scientist earning $51 a hour could earn more than $1,000 a month in today’s dollars.
It’s a good thing, because it means they can spend more time with their families, and they can afford to buy themselves a nice home, too.
It is possible to earn up to $50 an hour as a fishers biologist in the current environment, according the Bureau of the Census.
A more challenging job to manage fisheries is the science community, which will see a slight increase in salary as it expands to new areas.
The job of fisheries biologist is often a relatively safe one, according experts.
As such, it can be hard to find a position where a scientist has to be particularly experienced or have a strong work ethic.
It can also be hard for people to find suitable jobs as a scientist if they have other areas of expertise.
Some scientists have said that having to constantly travel to conferences and workshops in remote locations can also put them off.
Fishery biologist salary increases will also help to support a booming science community.
“This is the best thing to happen to fisheries for the last 50 years,” said Michael Biederman, a fisheries biologist at the University of California, Davis.
“The more we have fishery workers and the better they are at science, the more they will be able to support themselves, their families and their communities.”
There is also a growing interest in the ocean, as people are interested in the animals that live there, and more people are beginning to explore the waters of the North American North Pacific.
As part of this trend, scientists will be seeing an influx of people who are not necessarily interested in fishing.
“A lot of these people are people who want to get into the industry,” said Steve Gulledge, a fishermantologist at the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Agency in Boulder, Colorado.
“They’re looking for jobs.”
And as they look for jobs, they’ll be finding some of the most rewarding work.
“I’ve had my fair share of bad jobs in life, but this is by far the worst one I’ve ever had,” Gullie said.
