This report details community profiles (snapshot) development for identified fishing communities in South Africa’s Western Cape. This forms part of research to establish a prototype set of social indicators relating to human wellbeing, social vulnerability and resilience in coastal communities of the Western Cape Province. Our work contributes to the H2020 TRIATLAS project that seeks to address gaps in understanding South and Tropical Atlantic marine ecosystems and predict their future evolution, thereby contributing towards sustainable management of these complex systems.
