The Oceanic Institute also known as The Salvage Team is a research organization in which Rebecca, the research vessel works for. Theodore, Shelburne, and Northumberland often work on special operations with Rebecca. Together, they are sometimes called the 'treasure team'.


George and Foduck helped the Salvage Team save Cumberland when a satellite was under the Big Harbour, and also when a ship dropped some cargo, which Pugwash also helped with.


The Oceanic Institute is based on the Bedford Institute of Oceanography (B.I.O.) located in Halifax Harbour which supports of number of research ships.
