On what basis do the parties to a common adventure contribute to general average?

All the property at risk in the common adventure at the time of the incident giving rise to the general average act, and saved by that act, must contribute to the general average according to its value to its sound market value at the termination of the adventure. There must be equality of contribution between the owner of property sacrificed and the owner of property saved, so that no interest profits by his sacrifice.
