Maritime carreers

 
 

 Many of us as South Africans we love the ocean and would love to be involved with it in everyday life, however we can’t go to the beach every day, as much as we might want to, especially as we get older and enter the work place. But did you guys know that, after studying the proper subjects you could work in the maritime industry? Here are a couple of careers you could potentially have.

 

·       Marine Biology

 

This first career involves the scientific study of marine life and organisms in the sea. The duties of marine biologist are to protect, observe, study and manage marine organisms, animals and plants.

 

 

Fun fact: Marine biologists work underwater as much as they work in laboratories.

 

·       Ocean Engineering

 

Despite name this career does not involve building an ocean. Ocean engineering instead involves the designing, building, testing, and refining of different equipment used in the ocean. This career is a combination of exploring the depths of the ocean as well as its technical functioning of the technology in it.

 

 

Fun fact: Ocean engineers do a lot to help with our ocean environment, British engineers made a robotic fish that can detect pollution underwater.

 

·       Maritime Lawyer

 

Third on the list is the studying of the laws of the ocean as well as the people employed on the ocean which is even more interesting than it sounds. This means specializing in the laws of every nation to understand how trading and regulations work in different countries across the globe which will make you feel and come across as very well-travelled without necessarily needing to be.

 

 

Fun fact: While on the open ocean in international waters there is an entirely different set of laws that apply

 

·       Underwater photography

Last but definitely not least, underwater photography which focusses on taking pictures of anything and everything underwater. This means diving into the depths of water to produce picture perfect quality, which can be quite challenging because you are submerged under water but for all you out there more artfully inclined this one could be incredibly fun.

 

 

Fun fact: Underwater Photography is used for scientific purposes for example in the field of underwater archeology and for journalistic, artistic or personal hobby

 

As you can see there are loads of maritime careers that you can get into with the right subjects, some hard work and a bit of hectic determination. Let us know in the comments if you are interested in any of these careers or any other careers on the ocean we may have missed out.
