Definition: Saltwater

Fisheries

"Saltwater" means water where the salinity is appreciable. This may be water where the salinity is constantly high (e.g. seawater) or where the salinity is appreciable but not at a constantly high level (e.g. brackish water): the salinity may be subject to periodic variation due to the influx of fresh or seawaters.
