Government employment includes that with the Canadian Coast Guard and Fisheries and Oceans Canada. As well, Canada has several marine institutes such as Bamfield Marine Sciences Center, Bedford Institute of Oceanography, and Canadian Rivers Institute. These centers all employ marine biologists in a variety of capacities.

An emerging trend is for marine biologists to be involved in the development and testing of new drugs based on marine organisms. These people can work in private biotechnology or pharmaceutical laboratories, or even in the hospital industry collaborating with microbiologists and pharmacologists.

A degree in marine biology can be used for further studies in veterinary medicine, medicine, or law.
