Methods for preparing fluorescently labeled microparticles and bivalve larvae (Cerastoderma edule) are presented. The labeling is cheap, easy, and allows production of great quantities of fluorescent microparticles and larvae. Fluorescent visualization can be used as a tool to analyze hydrodynamical processes in the benthic boundary layer and to directly observe behavioral patterns in settling larvae.
