The COVID-19 pandemic has become a new challenge for businesses and communities around the world. In particular, the community is encouraged to resume their activities to support the post-pandemic economic recovery program. This advisory was issued after almost one and a half years the community was asked to limit many activities, especially economic and social activities. Kedung Cowek fishermen in Surabaya City are an example of a fishing community facing post-pandemic socioeconomic recovery. This study aims to 1) describe the economic activities of coastal communities during a pandemic and 2) their interactions with market traders during a pandemic. This study uses a qualitative methodology by analyzing ethnographic data taken from primary data sources through in-depth interviews with community leaders consisting of village government officials, fishing communities and the general public in Kedung Cowek Village. The analysis was carried out using the strategic trinity framework by Carl von Clausewitz and the new ethnography by James Spradley. This research was conducted in 2021 in Kedung Cowek Village, Surabaya City, as the center of the fishing community in Surabaya City. The results of this study found that (1) the pandemic did not change the perspective and behavior of the fishing village community towards the economy, as well as environmental cleanliness so that they continued to go to sea despite the call for restrictions and (2) there is a phenomenon of community resistance to the call for restrictions on activities related to the COVID-19 pandemic which is indicated by the characteristics of fishing communities who have sociocultural resilience so that they are not fundamentally affected. This case study leads to the conclusion that COVID-19 does not have a significant influence on the social behavior of the fishing community in Kedung Cowek Village in Surabaya.
