Very saline brines. Salt concentration greater than sea water.
salinities in excess of that commonly found in oceanic sea water, or greater than 35 ppt (parts per thousand) nvertebrate – organisms that lack a bony skeleton. Mangroves – the mangrove forest consists of a number of species of inshore, tropical shrubs and trees that can grow in salt water. The forest is commonly referred to as “mangal”.
A condition in which the salinity of the Bay becomes higher than the salinity of the ocean; this occurs during prolonged periods of drought (such as in 1977), when freshwater inputs are smaller than losses of water to evaporation
