Fish stuff as a profession

Wasnt sure where to put this so if Im wrong in putting it here feel free to move it, was thinking off topic but its kinda on topic but whatever to the point..

Im wondering what the options are for this. I know theres like setting up tanks and sales and all that side of things but Im looking more for the intellectual side of it. Now world renowned ichthyologist seems just a tad out of reach but sometimes I like learning and the fish world truely captivates me. I enjoy history too but only ancient history and I cant rule history in a box in my house so fish wins.

I have two main loves of fish, cichlids and bottom dwellers, blue rams and swamp darters are awesome and the jeweled goby cichlid is the awesomest.

In my head Im thinking like somebody that goes to the rift lakes to study the fish, but thats just an example.

I was watching the science channel and the progam was on rift lakes but I forget the profession name but cichlids and bottom dwellers are the best fish in my mind also

Be prepared for biology, chemistry in college. You could end up as a professor and work through grants given to the science department to travel to study various things. Youd be doing work in the field. I wouldnt think that you can just solely study the fish in we keep in our tanks though lol

Yep. Biology... Ichthiology would definately be a specialty major... If you get a doctorate or some such.

Your best bet with minimum work, would be get a degree in biology and be a research assistant to the guy working in the field. :P
