Water pollution in Pangasius aquaculture endangers its economic success and meaning for rural development in the Mekong Delta. With the help of Bourdieu s theory of practice, the author considers the interplay of subjective and objective structures to conclude on the conduct of practices in Pangasius cultivation. The study shows that economic dependencies in a global commodity production system have led to a transformation process that most aquaculturists cannot cope with. The discrepancy between the ideal and real situation can no longer be ignored otherwise the downward trend continues.
