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.

Sven Genschick is a geographer with special
interests in water resources management and (sustainable)
commodity productions.
