Biology is a given.

Hopefully by bio chem you mean organic chemistry.
This course may allow you to "place out of" several semester hours at the collegiate level but, for whatever reason, is commonly perceived to be difficult to master.

The necessity for physics has been well covered in a previous post.

What has not been discussed very much is math.
In basic research in virtually all fields a very, very good grasp is necessary.
Two simplistic examples.

1) You are studying X number of dolphins and have found Y number to have trait A and Z number to have trait B.
At a 99% confidence level what is the probability that all dolphins in the oceans will have trait A or trait B.
Probability Theory and Statistics.

2) You are studying dolphin communications and want to compare 10000 5 minutes sampling of sounds.
Seems overwhelming as their sounds are analog.
Ah ha: fourier transforms will convert the analog sound into digital form which can then be analyzed electronically.
Differential Equations and Numerical Methods

Rue's Avatar 'bio chem'...he meant 'biology, chemistry'...we don't do any official biochemistry in highschool...usually not until 2nd year University...

Fishkeeping wish: That every betta sold finds himself at least a 5g tank...

Wanting better for bettas...
