Career Education: The Marine Science Occupations Cluster.
This paper discusses career opportunities in eight broad groups of marine science occupations: (1) harbor construction and maintenance, (2) ship construction, (3) merchant marine activities, (4) towboating, (5) longshoring, (6) fishing and fish farming, (7) petroleum and natural gas exploration and extraction, and (8) research activities. The marine science cluster is defined to include those occupations which are directly related to activities occurring because of the presence of large bodies of water. Each of the groups described contains occupations with education and training requirements ranging from those calling for very limited skills to those requiring doctoral degrees. An annotated bibliography provides additional sources of information for marine science occupations. (MF)
