Lake Ontario is FRESH water      and is LESS dense than the SALT water of the Atlantic.....

Check out peole swimming in the VERY salty Dead Sea !

So buoyancy states that the object must be less dense than the liquid, so the more dense the liquid, buoyancy should apply more.

Basically, buoyancy states that the density of the object must be less than the density of the liquid it's in.

So as I said, regular freshwater has a density of 1g/ 1 cm^3, but salt water has more.

If an object can float in the 1g/ cm^3 density, the object can definitely float in salt water with more density.

The difference between the liquid density and the object's density grows to be more.

If it is in LESS dense liquid (saltwater), it must displace MORE of the liquid to remain afloat and will thus have to ride lower in the fresh water than in the salt water .
