hi, i still don't the reason why the taste of the sea is salty maybe it because it contains high count of acidity that makes the water more salty compare to the river and lakes,but there are salty seaweeds too and salty fish too,actually i tasted one fish in my province before a salty small fishes.

Actually all the water (river, time, lakes, etc.) containing mineral salts. It's just that the river water flowing into the sea mineral deposits. So all the minerals in sea salt is gathered so that the sea water 220 times saltier than the waters elsewhere. And plus also the sea, according to history, was formed 4.4 billion years ago, which initially are very acidic with boiling water (with temperatures around 100 ° C) due to warming of the Earth at the time. Acid sea water occurs because the Earth's atmosphere was filled with carbon dioxide. Water acidity is what causes the high weathering that occurs that produces salts which cause the sea water becomes salty as it is today.
