Abstract
This study aims to determine the participation of fishermen in participating family planning programs in Percut sei Tuan and to know the gender relations built in fishing communities. The type of research used is descriptive qualitative with ethnography approach. The research technique is done by in-depth interview and participant observation. The results of this study indicate that the low participation of men in participating in family planning program, this is due to the strong construction of cultural values adopted by the fishermen community such as "many children a lot of sustenance", the child acts as a labor that helps the family, the child is a medium for improving the fate of the family, and bringing honor to the family. Gender relationship built in the fishing community in KB is still low because the KB is considered the domain of women, the low knowledge of women about family planning programs that cause women to be very vulnerable to receive the impact of the use of contraception, the condition where women can not make their own decisions if you want to participate in family planning program so have to ask the husband's permission.
