Fish for a living

Hi before i ask my question i want to let you guys know i am currently a student in a community college in california

my question is that do any of you guys current maitain fish for a living? Does your job involved anything about fish? Im intrested because i have no idea what to major in and becoming an ichthyologist has come across my mind a couple times. I have been in love with fish for 10 years nows and it be a dream come true to have job relating to marine life of fish for that matter.

Hi, Crow123...
I don't do "fish" for a living, however I can tell you this!
Major in something that you enjoy since you will be doing it everyday for the next 40 years....
I believe in enjoying what you do for a living, it makes you better at it and you will excel!
Hope that helps some!
Life is short, love much, laugh often!

I totally echo Sunny! Money is nice, but it does not make up for hating your job! I can tell you from personal experence that I am much happier doing what I love for less money than hating my life and job for a big check. My advice would be to study what you love and try to do it for a living, and in all reality your major rarely has anything to do with what you end up doign for a living. Not to mention, there is always grad school to go a different direction.
