An immunological technique has been developed, which discriminates the Pecten maximus larvae among all other species present in different plankton samples from Brest Bay. This tool was used on each plankton sample to target the temporal distribution of the larvae between summer 1997 and summer 1998. The least abundant period for larvae from April to July 1998, was confirmed and also identified P. maximuswhich would have been very difficult to recognize with only the help of the analysis of prodissoconch shape. Multi micro-cohort larvae principally from April to July 1998 corresponded probably with as many spawning events.
