The use of baited remote underwater video surveys (BRUVS) has become increasingly prevalent in temperate ecosystems in recent years as this technique provides data on ecosystem structure and species composition. To date, no BRUVS have been performed in the Saco Bay due to natural obstacles within the region. Our modified BRUVS resulted in 66 hours of video recorded over 2 sampling periods with 17 different species of various taxa observed. A total of 623 individuals was observed based on MaxN. These baited remote underwater video surveys successfully provided ecosystem data; therefore, we suggest that it would be an ideal complementary sampling method for this region.
