This paper will discuss the sustainability of fisheries resources in the Thousand Islands by five main indicators, which are (1) ecology, (2) economic, (3) socio-cultural, (4) legal & institutional and (5) technology & infrastructure, by using the MDS (multidimensional scaling) analysis. By ordinal scoring on each attribute 0 (the lowest) and 3 (the highest) of each indicator, and with the support of Rapfish, it can be seen the similarity or dissimilarity of each indicator that are grouped in a space based on eucluidus distance. By using the scale of the sustainability index, it can be known the level of sustainability of each indicator. Besides, it can also be known the attribute’s level that should get the attention based on the percentage’s sequence of ordination root mean square (RMS) change on the X axis. And the evaluation of the error’s effect is using Monte Carlo. The results shows there are 2 indicators in the sufficient category of sustainable which are economic and social culture indicators with each sustainability index value stated 55.44% and 56.54%, while for ecology, legal and institutional as well as technology and infrastructure, the indicators are in the less sustainability category, amounting each sustainability index value of 48.63%, 43.73% and 34.17%.
