It IS salt water. It is just not as salty as the water it is mixing into (briefly).

Exactly.

The only reason such blending doesn't occur for some distance in some cases is the sheer volume of river water dumped into the ocean per second.

Ice takes considerably longer to melt.
How many salinity meters are you basing your results on? How far apart are they spaced and at what depth. You can't measure the salinity of water because it is being mixed all the time.

Eventually fresh water streams and river running into salt water oceans will "ALWAYS".....(yes always)....... become salt water!
