Desalination plants produce very salty sea water that is returned to the sea. The salt and water that make sea water are not 100% separated. Some fresh water is extracted from the sea water and the rest is pumped back into the ocean.

I go out to the West Coast of Van. Is. There I collect 30 gals of pristine ocean water in sealable 5 gal pails.
Bring it home and using a wood fire pit and a SS 45 gal vat I scored somewhere fifty years ago I evaporate the water. I end up with a surprising amount of beautiful bone white sea salt. I jar it and give it to friends and family as gifts.
I like that it has a subtle ocean taste and smell.
