Abstract: The paper uses data from the household-level social economic survey (Fishing Transition Survey) implemented in Ca Mau and Hue in 2012, to specify the determinants of the migration decision based upon three variables, namely, the respondent's demographic, household and commune characteristics. The difference between the current studies and this paper is that this paper uses a Logit model to conclude that a positive relationship exists between a fishing family and the migration decision. Moreover, the impact of household income on migration depends greatly on lthe household's migration strategy. The richest families are more likely to sent migrants because they want to learn the modern technologies to increase the productivity of household industries. Moreover, The paper also finds that the migration process tends to increase the income inequality in rural areas.
