The research objective was to analyze the sustainability status of tuna fisheries. This study was a survey of 90 respondents in two tuna location centers in Prigi and Malang districts. The method used the Multi-Dimensional Scaling (MDS) analysis using the software Rapfish (Rapid Appraisal for Fisheries). The results showed that the sustainability status seen from 5 dimensions, (1) Biology, (2) Economic, (3) Technology, (4) Social, (5) Institutional, showed that the level of sustainability of tuna fishing from the technological and economic dimensions was Quite Sustainable.
