    The recent sustained growth of the U.S. economy has directly affected the field of fisheries as more and more individuals have become interested in both revenue-producing and recreational activities involving fish. Concomitant with this growth is an apparent proliferation of education opportunities in our field. Although probably more jobs are available in fisheries today than ever before, a surfeit of well-qualified graduates has made competition for these jobs particularly intense. Consequently, it is not uncommon for highly trained fisheries graduates to have difficulty obtaining employment in the field. These circumstances necessitate that future graduates be highly prepared if they hope to find a job as a fisheries manager or researcher. In fact, most professional positions in fisheries now require at least a master's degree.
