Hello there. There are two things to take note of when one categorizes a job and expects to understand if it pays well.

The first thing is not to assume that the degree of qualification you have actually relates to the job title or the job role based on what you have studied. And secondly, always remember that any job will pay well, provided the applicant has the expertise, knowledge, competency and attitude that will make one a successful intrapreneur or entrepreneur.

So going back to your question, what is the highest paying marine biology job, my answer is that it all depends on what one has to offer and the budget that organization has to afford the applicant. Many organizations are willing to pay above their budget line, if they know the applicant will bring a lot more value to the role than they had originally expected.

Finally, there are many kinds of marine biology jobs, some focus on the technical aspects that relate to technology and some relate to management and some relate to policy and advocacy, all of them pay well but it depends where in the world you are and which organization you represent. Currency exchange can make a difference right now.

If you are an entry level applicant for a job, then it would be best ones join a nonprofit or commercial organization that will benefit from your creative ideas and ability to be a risk taker and quick learner. They will pay you well and the benefits are good as well.

All the best.
