A marine biologist is a biologist who studies in the field of marine biology; that is, the science related to oceanography, specifically involved in the study of marine organisms. A marine biologist who specifically studies whales and related species is known as a cetacean biologist.

Gillian Taylor was a marine biologist who worked with the humpback whales, George and Gracie, at Sausalito, California's Cetacean Institute in 1986.

During a pizza date with James T. Kirk, Kirk inquired to Taylor how "a nice girl like you got to be a cetacean biologist," she responded that she was "just lucky, I guess."

Later, when Kirk and the crew of the HMS Bounty attempted to capture George and Gracie to take back to the 23rd century, Taylor convinced Kirk to take her with him to the future because she was a whale biologist, and "who in the 23rd century knows anything about humpback whales?"

Despite this, she would be assigned to a science vessel upon her arrival to the 23rd century, telling Kirk that she had "300 years of catch-up learning to do." (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)

Amanda Rogers' adoptive parents were Starfleet marine biologists, stationed in the Bilaren system as of 2369. (TNG: "True Q")
