Salvage Operation is a side quest in Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening. A supply ship bound for Vigil's Keep wrecked at Anselm's Reef. Mistress Woolsey has no men for a salvage operation, but suggests that some of the goods may remain.
The quest is given via a message from the Private in front of Vigil's Keep. There won't be a quest-marker (i.e. no glowing exclamation mark) for it, so it is recommended to initiate dialogue with the Private and ask about new messages every now and then. The letter will normally be available after returning from your first trip to the City of Amaranthine.
Defeat the scavengers and loot their remains to get the Salvaged Trade Goods. The salvaged trade goods can also be found in crates around the area.
Since the quest completes as soon as you arrive in Anselm's Reef, the salvaged trade goods do not need to be turned in, and can instead be sold to any vendor.
