'sound technician perhaps' is the definition.
I can't tell whether this defines the answer.

'point behind foreign airline boom' is the wordplay.
'point' becomes 'gist' (I've seen this in another clue).
'behind' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).
'foreign' indicates anagramming the letters (foreign order of the letters).
'airlineboom' is an anagram of 'marinebiolo'.
'gist' put after 'marinebiolo' is 'MARINE BIOLOGIST'.

'sees' acts as a link.
