The Institut français de recherche pour l'exploitation de la mer (IFREMER; English: French Research Institute for Exploitation of the Sea) is an oceanographic institution in France.

Ifremer focuses its research activities in the following areas:

  • Monitoring, use and enhancement of coastal seas

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.

In 2008, Ifremer partnered with Dr. Bruce Shillito for the testing and initial operations of the PERISCOP, a deep sea fish recovery device.[2]
