The salinity of the ocean is less in river deltas and in ocean access bays that have rivers that flow into them.
An example of a river delta meeting the sea is the Mississippi and the Gulf of Mexico. click here: http://www.lpi.usra.edu/publications/slidesets/oceans/oceanviews/slide_28.html to see an image of the “Salinity Front”
