Oyster larvae initially have an eyespot on settlement stage (pediveligers). This study investigated the eyespot with light wavelength-dependent absorbance, and its functional details for settlement in the Pacific oyster Magallana gigas larvae. Eyespot efficiently absorbed 500–650 nm of light wavelength. Based on the eyespot absorbance, pediveligers were subjected to different light conditions with light-emitting diodes (LEDs): near ultraviolet (NUV), blue, white, green, red, and near infrared…

Effects of Light Intensity and Wavelength on the Phototaxis of the Crassostrea gigas (♂) and Crassostrea sikamea (♀) Hybrid Larvae
TLDR
The results indicated that hybrid oyster larvae had positive phototaxis to specific light intensity and wavelength, and that the acceptable light intensity range of the eyespot hybrid larvae expanded to 5–10 lx, but no higher than 15 lx; besides, the hybrid larvae behaved negatively to the light over 25 lx.
Ontogenic phototactic behaviors of larval stages in intertidal barnacles
TLDR
The results provide a valuable insight into the light-response mechanisms that potentially determine the distribution of barnacle larvae and the settlement behavior of cyprids.
Review: Use of Electrophysiological Techniques to Study Visual Functions of Aquatic Organisms
TLDR
This review provides an overview of the milestones of ERG technology, describing how ERG is used to study visual sensitivity of fish, crustaceans, mollusks, and other aquatic organisms and the correlations between visual sensitivity and habitat.

Behavior and reproduction of the rotifer Brachionus plicatilis species complex under different light wavelengths and intensities
TLDR
According to these results, both wavelength and intensity of light affect the population growth of rotifers, which in turn may be influenced by theRotifers' wavelength-dependent phototaxis.
ONTOGENY OF PHOTOTAXIS DURING LARVAL DEVELOPMENT OF THE SEDENTARY POLYCHAETE, SERPULA VERMICULARIS (L.)
TLDR
Based on laboratory behavior, a twilight migration pattern is predicted for S. vermicularis trochophores, and a hypothesis is suggested which could account for the evolution of did migration in larvae of coastal species.
Light responses of the larva of the serpulid polychaeteGaleolaria caespitosa
TLDR
AdultGaleolaria caespitosa were collected at Cape Banks and Balmoral Bay, both in the vicinity of Sydney, Australia, from October 1985 to February 1986, and the terminal, photoneutral, thigmotactic phase may be important in the selection of a suitable site for settlement.
Adult Pacific Oyster (Crassostrea gigas) May Have Light Sensitivity
TLDR
It is found that the degree of opening increased gradually during the light period but rapidly decreased when the flashlight was turned off in the treated group but not in the control group, suggesting that adult Pacific oyster may be sensitive to light.
Settlement of oyster (Crassostrea virginica) larvae: Effects of water flow and a water-soluble chemical cue
TLDR
This investigation provides the first experiimental evidence to demonstrate that dissolved chemical cues can mediate settlement by larvae under hydrodynamic conditions approaching those of natural benthic habitats.
UVA and UVB Penetration in the Water Column of a South West Atlantic Warm Temperate Estuary and its Effects on Cells and Fish Larvae
TLDR
The results suggest that planktonic organisms that live close to surface water column in the Patos Lagoon estuary are subject to the effects of continued exposure to UVR.
