||The video, realized by ENEA (Italy), shows the experimental procedures for assessing the impact of stressors in the marine environment on sea urchin larvae. The use of planktonic larvae to assess the toxicity of contaminants is important to support the evaluation of the impacts on critical biological processes such as larval development, which could change the structure of populations and communities. The planktonic early life stages are generally recognized as the most vulnerable phase for sea urchin life cycle, so that the embryotoxicity test is often used as a sub chronic test to evaluate the effects of many contaminants such as nanomaterials, heavy metals, and antifouling products and standard toxicity testing methods have been published. The procedure is shown step by step and will help inexperienced people in performing the experimental assessment, allowing easier comprehension and application of such protocols. The training is organized in a video tutorial that aims to transfer these procedures to other territories and/or target groups. The procedure is shown step by step and will help practioners and early stage researchers in performing the experimental assessment, allowing an easier understanding and performing of this test. SDGs addressed: SDG 3: Good Health and Well-being, SDG 13: Climate Action, SDG 14: Life Below Water.
