Salaries vary greatly among marine mammal scientists, with government and
industry jobs having the highest pay. Despite the fact that the salary will
increase with years of experience and graduate degrees, it generally remains
low considering the amount of experience and education needed. This is
mainly due to the high competition in this field. Another factor is in which
country you are living the level of salary will vary a fair amount. A 1990
survey of 1,234 mammalogists conducted by the American Society of
Mammalogists indicated that 42.7% of the respondents earned >$40,000/year.
The salary range that included the most respondents (21.2%) was the
$30,000-$40,000 range.
I am sorry if I cannot give you more details.
