    • This paper shows how to chose contracts of fishing in the Philippines. It is based on fieldwork conducted in the fishing villages of Mercedes, Bicol region, from May to June 1988. In these villages, most fishing boats are from three to seven meters in length, half of them are motorized, locally called "motor", and others are non-motorized, "paraw". An owner usually has only one boat, and many fishermen work on an other's motor on a share-rent basis by which the catch is divided equally among those who provide the motor, the fishing-net and the labor. Some workers on paraws fish on the different share-rent, equally devided among the paraw and the labor. The income of a motor-owner who employs one laborer is thus three times more than that of an employee or a paraw-fisherman, because an employee must pay a fee for the use of a motor and a fishing-net under this system, and the productivity of a paraw is very low. This labor contract shares risk among a owner and workers under uncertainty of catch and mainteins labor incentives of workers, because they can expect to get more catch if they work harder. But this system doesn't restrain active moral hazard that workers use a motor or fishing net carelessly for getting a lot of catch. Therefor a motor-owner hire a relative to control non-relatives on the same motor.
