The thing I like most about Fisheries Oceanography is that it provides the opportunity to combine field work with laboratory work and modelling. I got hooked on field work early on in my scientific career (so much so that I was eventually "grounded" by my PhD supervisor) and I still spend as much time as possible at sea. It's a little tougher to find the time these days, but I always look forward to my field season each year. I also encourage (and expect) my students to spend time at sea. Although you need never set foot on a ship to get oceanographic data these days, I still believe there is no substitute for actually getting out there and collecting the data yourself.
