Fish are widely used as biological monitors of variations in environmental levels of pollutants. To understand how the fish antioxidant, neural systems respond to the oxidative stress under acute Cd2+ exposures (0.005 mg/L, 0.025mg/L, 0.05mg/L, 0.25mg/L), the superoxide dismutase (SOD) activities and lip peroxidation (MDA ) contents in the liver and gill, and acetycholinesterase (AChE) activities in the brain of Lutijanus erythropterus were measured respectively. The results showed that the hepatic SOD activities were induced significantly (p
