What is a Marine Biologist who studies Freshwater Species? Or would they just be called a Marine Biologist?

Wouldn't be marine biology.

I think you are thinking of an ichthyologist, and you would usually do a Biology/Zoology course.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ichthyology

Marine refers to the ocean.

There is a link to ichthyology.

Lots of dedication to get into that field! As unissuh said, you'd take a zoology program and focus on freshwater fish studies.

Here is an example of a jumping off point in studies in my city.

I have a friend who is marine biologist now working in Maldives. He's living a dream! Maldives is so beautiful! I don't think he's working at all, he's being paid to snorkel everyday, sip cocktail at the beach. Youza!
