Photorepair of UV-B lesions occurred in embryonic northern anchovy larvae. The photoreactive fluence rate required to fully activate photorepair mechanisms was less than 10% of that available from the sun on a clear day in March (33N). Even with UV-B enhancement from ozone depletion, sufficient photoreactive fluence exists in the sea to ensure maximal photorepair of UV damage in anchovy larvae.
