This paper presents a multidisciplinary approach for the comparative evaluation of small-scale tropical fisheries. Previously, these most often have been studied within single disciplines of the social or natural sciences, rarely leading to broad comparisons. Here, multidimensional scaling, canonical correlation, and cluster analysis were used to examine and contrast the information contained in multivariate data sets originating from the disciplines of biology, economics, social science, and technology of seventeen real tropical small-scale fisheries and two simulated ones. Multivariate analysis was performed within the four disciplines and the resultant outputs were compared and contrasted. The relative location of the fisheries in these derived scores suggests relations among social, economic and biologic factors.
