Dissolved oxygen concentrations vary in saltwater depending on three factors
- temperature, salinity and pressure. Colder water, water with a lesser
salinity concentration and water with a greater amount of pressure contain
higher amounts of dissolved oxygen.

I have long wondered what relationship, if any, exists between salinity of
water and the amount of dissolved oxygen,
I suspect that temperature may also come into this equation.
