Swakopmund Coastal Research Institute
Bronwen Currie is a Namibian scientist working at the Swakopmund Coastal Research Institute of the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources where she holds the post of chief biologist.
Her greatest interest lies in the near shore environment of the northern Benguela upwelling system, studying the effects of oceanographical processes on the biota. This has led to investigation of the intertidal and subtidal ecology, the naturally occurring and unique hydrogen sulphide events, and more recently, harmful algal blooms.
To Currie, coastal zone priorities include scientific input to preserve the unpolluted coastal waters of Namibia. She is married with three grown-up children, all of whom are carrying forward in their careers deep concern for the health of the oceans.
