One, relatively small, factor leading to the apparant oversupply of
fisheries professionals is the tendency to 'use' graduate student labor
to carry out research programs. This, of course, is good for those
seeking an assistantship and cheaper for those using research funds.
Nevertheless, the other effects are fewer jobs (those assistantships
could be technicians) and more holders of graduate degrees.
