The statistical aspects of cluster distributions as a decisive factor in high energy nuclear fragmentation are studied on a finite lattice model. The qualitative behaviour of the mass spectra is understood in terms of a simple model in which finite space constraints play the main role. Both, the light and the heavy mass sector of the spectrum are derived analytically. In the low density regime the model includes those results of Fisher's condensation theory which are frequently applied to nuclear fragmentation.
