This paper evaluates the feasibility of establishing a Multiple Use Marine Protected Area. The methodology was applied to evaluate three proposed sites in Chile with diverse conservation needs, social stress and poverty levels, and different economic activities (small-scale fishing, heavy industry and mining activities). We use two broad categories for the evaluation: Socio-economic and political-institutional. The methodology uses a combination of secondary data with personal interviews, workshops and focus groups with fishermen, unions, politicians, social organizations, etc., from different political, social and economic background to characterize current and potential natural and social resources and to evaluate in an ordinal scale the feasibility of establishing the protected area.
