We assessed the confidence of academics in their careers in fisheries faculties at Turkish universities and developed a scale based on the Job Satisfaction Questionnaire (Cellucci & DeVries, 1978) to classify their attitudes in order to evaluate level of job satisfaction. A survey and a personal information form were made available via the Internet to academics employed in various faculties of fisheries in Turkish universities. Testing for validity and reliability showed that the trust attitudes of academics could be examined with 5 factors: satisfaction with supervisors, satisfaction with coworkers, satisfaction with pay, satisfaction with promotion, and satisfaction with work itself. Results showed that coworkers and promotions were considered more important than the pay. The most important factor in job satisfaction was coworkers, with working as a team and sharing also rated as important. There was no significant difference in the rating of the factors according to gender. These findings are important as preliminary research in the fishing sector.
