A friend of a friend just told me that a little, old-fashioned, right-from-the-ocean saltwater has some positive fertilization properties for farmers. Is this true?

I've heard anecdotally that seaweed can be a good fertilizer, but the anecdotes never specify which kind of seaweed is good. I tried some bladder kelp with indifferent results. Salt water though? That doesn't sound right. I think the fertilization properties of salt are pretty much summed up by its role in the phrase, "Burn it down and salt the earth."
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
