    Ocean salinity is generally measured in psu (practical salinity units), which measures salinity in grams of salt/kilograms of water (1 psu = 1 g/kg).  Salinity varies somewhat, depending on location, but is generally in the 30s.  The surface salinity of the Pacific Ocean was measured as 35 psu, while the Atlantic was 37 psu.  This translates to about 132.5 g/gallon for the Pacific Ocean and 140 g/gallon for the Atlantic Ocean.
