    Four groups of dogfish were subjected to 50 ppm of cadmium for 1, 2, 3 and 4 days and haematological values were analyzed from blood samples. No differences were found in the majority of parameters, except for the Red Blood Cell Counts that show a significant increase during the second and third day of treatment. The results of the different parameters indicate a pattern of dual response depending on the time of exposure, a first phase of toxic impact during the first two days, followed by a second phase of recovery at the end of 4 days treatment.
