Usually fluids of different densities stack on top of each other, not sit side by side. Anyone know why this works differently?

i think the difference is so low that the salty side isn't able to slip through the barrier.

i hope you know what i mean

Oil and water, for example, stack because the oil is less dense than the water. However, the density is not why they do not mix. They are unable to mix because water is polar and oil is non-polar, which causes them  to not be miscible in one another.

It doesn't have anything to do with densities. It looks like the picture was taken at the edge of a continental shelf, where the depth suddenly drops, making the deeper water appear darker.

There are quite a few places in Florida where you could see the same thing, if you wanted to take a field trip.

As far as I can tell, that's not two oceans at all. It's a rock beachfloor that quickly decends, creating a cliff-like ending. The foam is due to the water hitting from below, pushing upwards and dragging in air on the way down. It's not colored based on minerals, it's based on depth.

there isn't usually a definite line between the two oceans like that, there's usually Brackish water inbetween. this leads me to believe its photoshopped, but i could be wrong

it is not photo shopped, I work in the merchant navy and when I was off the coast in the east of Canada I witnessed it and I still want to know what it is.

I agree with this gentleman. Why wouldn't salty water mix with normal water?.. I mean whale jizz mixes with the water fine and I'm pretty sure that's definitely of different density.

I think it must be something to do with currents and tides, its not photo shopped though.

It's not two oceans, it's where a glacial river pours into the gulf of Alaska. The light blue water has all the glacial flour in it and the boundary is just caused by volume of water from the river, the specific time at which it's being observed and the eddies within the ocean. The boundary will shift and eventually go altogether.

The pics the meeting point between the Baltic Sea and the North Sea. Essentially if not for the North Sea pouring in, the Baltic Sea would be a giant freshwater reserve.

No.
Its a common misconception that OP's pic is from where the North Sea and the Kattegat part of the Baltic meets at Skagen in Northern Jutland, Denmark.

While there is a difference in density between the North Sea and the Baltic, its not nearly as clear as the one in the picture.

OP's picture is, if I'm not much mistaken, from the Gulf of Alaska where glacial coast water meets the Pacific ocean.

Okay then. I didn't think the sea looked like that up at Skagen, so that settles it.
