I find that the coarse sea salt I use for cooking is saltier than the fine sea salt so have to be a little careful and not pur away with abandon!
The coarse one is made by the process of evaporation from water obtained from the Mediterranean sea. Are some oceans and seas saltier than others?

Yes some oceans and seas are saltier than others, but salt is salt. One is not more salty then the other. The difference is the shape and size of the crystals and how they dissolve on your tongue which can affect your perception of how salty they may taste.
