^ hey, I have a water related job too
Limnologist (that's a freshwater biologist - imagine Jaques Custeau in a creek) reporting in. While I originally wanted a job as a botanist, I had to change plans when my dad had a serious heart attack and I simply picked the job located closest to my family. Being in the water all day is not exactly thrilling if you can't swim and are even scared of water, unless it's in a bathtub (I almost drowned as a kid).
I kinda got stuck with it and after 20 years I rather like it. I have far more freedom than I'd have in many other jobs since my boss trusts me absolutely and leaves most decisions to me.
I'm not scared of water anymore either, but I still can't swim. Somehow I never got around to learn it. But maybe in another 300 years
