Richard Broer, an International Marathon Swimming Hall of Famer, explained the water flows between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, as massive water flow cross the 14.4 km Strait of Gibraltar.

The water flows into the Mediterranean Sea (almost) permanently. That is, because the that sea evaporates faster than it is filled by the Nile River, Rhone River, Donau (Danube) River, etc. can fill it, explaining the high salinity of the Mediterranean Sea.”
