Day in the Life

Marine LaboratoryIn Marine Scotland, we've got lots of different people doing lots of different kinds of jobs. Some people work on ships, others go out on boats to gather samples. Some people never go to sea but work in laboratories and others don't work in a laboratory, but work in an office.


To try and explain a bit more about the kinds of things that Marine Scotland does, some of the people who work here have given us some insider information about what their job involves....and much more.

Marine Scotland has also teamed up with colleagues at the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) to find out more about the types of jobs that they do, so be inspired!
