Does light influence speed of development ?

I am a student working with the development of Zebrafish embryos in 
ELF magnetic field. In some experiments I found that the illuminance (light)
was three times higher in one group than in the other (520 lux vs. 150 lux).
Experiments indicates that the embryo -development went faster in 
the group with the highest illuminance.

Does anyone know if and how the illuminance influence the development
time for Zebrafish embryo?
