T&T Ocean Rescue & Repair Ltd. is a professional marine repair and salvage company based out of Lower East Pubnico, Nova Scotia. Working in cooperation with local marine surveyors, we provide emergency response and recovery of commercial fishing vessel casualties and pollution resolution on behalf of vessel owners and insurance underwriters. We are the only private company with these services in Southwest Nova Scotia and have a highly experienced team and multiple rescue craft. We work in close cooperation with the local community including fire departments, shipyards, marine industry suppliers and contractors on a regular basis.
Our jobs often include the salvage and recovery of fishing vessels in dire distress. Typical examples include partial or full submersion (at a wharf or at sea), and strandings in remote and hard to access locations. We are often the first responder and pollution control is our top priority. We have a solid track record for fuel recovery, often in adverse conditions, and have established an excellent working relationship with Environment Canada in this area.
In 2018 we responded to 14 marine casualty claims in the Maritime Provinces and 9 of these were out of our homeport in Lower East Pubnico. Lower East Pubnico is positioned in the heart of the Southwest Nova Scotia fishing fleet and the surrounding ports in and around Pubnico Harbour and along the shorelines of Yarmouth, Digby and Shelburne. Given this highly strategic location and our around-the-clock service, we are in a unique position to provide emergency response for all types of marine casualties and environmental issues over a large area.
