Places to get jobs working with saltwater fish and or animals

I didn't know where to post this so I thought I would here. I want to turn my love for saltwater into a career. Whether it's working at sea world or working with saltwater fish all day. Is there any schools specific for these types of things? Please give me your input if you have any idea. Thank you!

Marine Biology is a major offered at most Universities. I unfortunately chose Criminal Justice. Looking back I wish I would have studied something cooler

Why do you regret studying criminal justice? Sorry to intrude, I am a criminal justice major at Florida State University. And yes, marine biology is a great profession that incorporates your passion for the hobby.

I believe at Sea World you would need at least a degree, with at least a few years of experience in the field to apply. They are rather picky about there employees.

Marine biology comes to mind if you're looking at public aquariums and such.

Most large aquariums require a college education majoring in marine biology. Without a degree, you could work at a local pet store. I would still recommend learning as much as you can and being a strong advocate to customers. Good luck in your search.

I shouldn't say regret because I'm glad I went to school and all, I just sort of changed career paths late in college and ended up not really needing a CJ degree. I went to the University of Alabama.
