The study of marine organisms, their behaviors, and their interactions with the environment is considered one of the most all encompassing fields of oceanography. A marine biologist is one who studies marine fish populations or manage a marine wildlife preserve and are concerned with protection of marine organisms there.

Journal Article is sometimes called a Scientific Article, a Peer-Reviewed Article, or a Scholarly Research Article. Together, journal articles in a particular field are often referred to as The Literature.
Journal articles are most often Primary Research Articles. However, they can also be Review Articles. These types of articles have different aims and requirements. Sometimes, an article describes a new tool or method.
Because articles in scientific journals are specific, meticulously cited and peer-reviewed, journal databases are the best place to look for information on previous research on your species. Without a background in the field, journal articles may be hard to understand however, you do not need to understand an entire article to be able to get valuable information from it.
