Ifremer

Ifremer is the "Institut français de recherche pour l'exploitation de la mer"; an oceanographic institution in France, whose name translates to English as the "French Research Institute for Exploitation of the Sea".

In 1985, Ifremer partnered with Dr. Robert Ballard for an ultimately-successful expedition to locate the wreck of the RMS Titanic. In 1994 Ifremer assisted in the salvage of the cargo from the SS John Barry.

Ifremer operates a number of vessels, including the submarine Nautile.
