Abstract: The effects of body weight, illumination, stocking density, water velocity and diurnal variation on oxygen consumption rate and ammonia excretion rate of Mugil cephalus juvenile were determined by closed flow experimental methods, and suffocation point and suffocation time in relation to body weight were investigated in this study. Mugil cephalus juvenile were stocked in the conditions with water temperature at 19±1salinity at 30 and pH at 7.7. The result showed that the oxygen consumption rate of Mugil cephalus juvenile were increased along with body weight which could be expressed by power equation Y= 0.4759X0.1878 (R2=0.9454). Illumination had significant effect on the oxygen consumption rate rather than ammonia excretion rate. Stocking density had significant influence on oxygen consumption rate (P<0.05) and ammonia excretion rate (P<0.01). Respiratory metabolism of Mugil cephalus juvenile was active during the time from 11:00 to 23:00. Effect of water velocity was significant on both oxygen consumption rate and ammonia excretion rate (P<0.01). Weight had a great effect on suffocation point and suffocation time (P<0.01).
