It's not a similar symbol but the per-mille sign (‰) because
salinity is usually measured in grams per kilogram of solution
If you said this to an average 7th grader in Korea in Korean
(and perhaps Japan and Taiwan as well), she'd ask back how come you didn't
know that :-). They have to cram all sorts of useless (and some useful)

P.S. This message is in UTF-8 and includes the per-mille sign
