You actually lose both as when the salt spray is thrown on top of your tank it is a salt solution. After the water evaporates from it then a salty crust remains. Either way that`s what they make hydrometers and refractometers for. A constant check on your salinity is a good thing.

That picture is a pretty bad case. I usually add it back to the sump or drop in the overflow.
