Ceridwen (Crid) Fraser grew up in Australia and spent childhood summers poking around in rockpools along the New South Wales south coast. She developed a deep attachment to the ocean and the fascinating critters that live in and around it, and decided at the age of 11 to become a marine biologist. She has worked in Belgium and Australia, and today is an associate professor in the Marine Science Department at the University of Otago.
