Question:  i have always been interested in bing a marine  biologist to
further study the sharks but i am uncomfortable to scube dive. is  this a
necessary part of being a marine biologist?

Reply:  Dear Patrick,
Although it is helpful it is not necessary to be a scuba diver to become a
marine biolgist.  For more information about what you do need to do to
become a marine biologist please read the careers booklet on WhaleNet.
Just click on the career section button on the front of the ASK page in
WhaleNet.  Good luck! Kim
