This thesis examines the long-term evolution of a small-scale fishery system and associated consequences for community livelihoods in the largest lagoon in Southeast Asia - the Tam Giang Lagoon in Vietnam. Drawing on an integrated framework that combined the concepts of vulnerability, resilience and system dynamics, the thesis revealed that changes in this fishery system caused disproportionate impacts, leading to different livelihood trajectories and intensified resource exploitation practices. The research advances the body of knowledge on vulnerability and livelihood dynamics and offers a practical lens for examining recurrent problems in fishery common-pool resources.
