Sea-water is the water that occurs naturally in the Earth's seas or oceans.


Sea-water is part of the water cycle: the water found in seas contains far greater concentrations of dissolved ions, particularly sodium (Na+) and chloride(Cl-) ions, than that in the fresh-water of rivers, lakes and ponds.


Sea-water is the habitat of many organisms,whose cellular chemistry is adapted to cope with this concentration.


Humans, among other organisms, cannot deal with it. We would die if able only to drink sea-water, because our mechanisms for homeostasis are insufficient: the concentration of sodium ions in seawater is above the kidney's maximum operating capacity without drinking additional fresh-water.
