To ascertain the extent of metabolic changes in fish exposed to chemical in aquatic environment, metabolic responses in T. guineensis exposed to Sodium Bromide at various concentrations of 0.00 controls, 0.50, 1.00, 1.50, 2.00 and 2.50 mg/L were studied. T. guineensis of the juvenile and adult sizes totaled 180 were used for the study. The study's findings showed that when compared to control values, the values of metabolites including creatinine, total bilirubin, and total protein were significantly lower (P< 0.05) in the exposed fish, whereas urea levels were significantly higher (P< 0.05). In contrast, these changes were more obvious in the juvenile fish that had been exposed to the toxin. This work provides baseline data that can be helpful for future comparative studies of metabolic stress in aquatic biota from polluted coastal environments and effective bio- monitoring of the aquatic biota.
