Abstract: This report provides historical overview on river catchment, ecology, biotic and abiotic characteristics and available information on the Klein estuary. Kleinriviersvlei is popularly known as "Hermanus Lagoon". In some of the accounts of Kleinriviersvlei it is difficult to determine exactly to which component of the system the author is referring. However, for the purposes of this report, the estuary is that part of the system between an imaginary line joining Kettle and Pulpit points and the sea. The lagoon is the main lacustrine water body between the kettle point - Pulpit point line and the point of entry of the Kleinrivier in the east. When the system as a whole is being discussed it is referred to as kleinriviersvlei or, more simply the vlei. The vlei has its origin at the confluence of the Hartebees and Steenboks rivers south-east of Dunghye Park.
