Deep Brine is a common Slime Science Resource obtained with a pump anywhere in The Dry Reef, but not The Ranch or its expansions as they are not considered part of The Dry Reef. It is primarily used for Decorations and Fashion Pods.
Deep brine is a common resource exclusive to the Dry Reef, obtained with a pump.
Not safe for drinking, the deep brine is thought to be water from slime sea that has been filtered by the subterranean coral of the Dry Reef. It is significantly denser than fresh water and loaded with salt.
On the Ranch:
Deposit deep brine into the Lab's refinery where it can be used for crafting Slime Science gadgets.

- Because you cannot obtain Deep Brine inside the ranch, you have higher chances to get Primordy Oil when pumping.
- Deep Brine's name may come from the term "Deep-sea Brine pools", which are lakes of highly salinated water that are formed when water becomes more dense than the surrounding ocean and settles on the seafloor, often in craters. This water can be toxic to surrounding marine life.
- Many kinds of Brine lakes exist; saltwater, sedimentary, geothermal, etc. Depending on the type of Brine lake, they may be extracted for the resources they can contain through a process called Brine mining.
