The study determined the perceptions of JBLFMU-Molo faculty and students and their views on Silver Pompano as a mariculture study. Quantitative method of research was employed through the use of the data-gathering instruments and interview. Respondents of the study were the 75 marine instructors and students at the maritime university in the Philippines. Descriptive statistics used were frequency, percentage, and rank. Results revealed that the Silver Pompano (Trachinotus blochii) mariculture is an attempt to take part in the environment and global warming mitigation issues. Most of the respondents observed that the global warming/extreme heat is the major problem that confronts the environment today. The respondents’ primary source of information regarding global warming mitigation was the news from the media. They also perceived that the major cause of global warming problems was due to man’s act of negligence. Majority of the respondents in the study were involved in environmental-friendly global warming activities. The study concluded that an effort to take part in the activities towards sustainable environmental global warming initiatives lead to a willingness to take roles in the planning stage of any program. xecutive Position and Career have significant relationships with Selfesteem and Risk taking personality attributes.
