Which is the saltiest sea?

The Dead Sea is the world's saltiest sea, which is located on the borders of Israel and Jordan. It is 10 times saltier than the average ocean. The Dead Sea has no exit. Most of its water comes from the north, from the River Jordan. The mineral springs adds to the salt in the water which is at bottom of the Dead Sea and around its shores. Enormous amount of water is lost by evaporation due hot and dry climate. Therefore salt in water is very concentrated. The shores of the Dead Sea are the lowest exposed point on the Earth's surface: 393 meters below sea level. To the south is the Red Sea, which is also the saltiest part of the open sea. Because much of the water evaporates in the hot sun the salt is concentrated and little is added from the surrounding desert
