Abstract
    T. Adspersus, was exposed for 30 and 60 days to 0.05 or 0.10 ppm Cd as cadmium chloride. The mean gill-tissue respiratory rates exhibited by the control fish and those exposed to 0.05 and 0.01 ppm Cd were 972, 736, and 665 {mu}lO2/h.g dry wt, respectively, after 30 days and 1036, 702, and 587 {mu}lO2/h.g, respectively, after 60 days, Changes were also observed in the activities of 2 liver enzymes, aspartate amino transferase (depression) and glucose-6-phosphate dehydeogenase (induction). Results are compared with those from other metal exposure studies with cunners and other teleosts.
