I know of a company in Louisiana that had an accidental spill of salt water into a freshwater bayou. It is home to freshwater turtles so I am wondering how the saltwater will affect them. From my understanding, the concentration is low but is any salt water fatal to freshwater turtles? Thanks alot.

No one is mean enough to test the effects but it will probably dry them out and make them thirsy. Most Liklie they will die but someone should save them it would be disgusting to see so many dead turtles.
