Enceladus may have ocean currents like we see around Antarctica

Catastrophe

"There never was a good war, or a bad peace."
Salt content of Enceladus' ocean is not that different from Earth's:

"The research suggests that the icy grains in the Enceladus plume contain substantial quantities of sodium salts (0.5-2 per cent by mass), which the scientists say ..

"The concentration of salt in seawater (salinity) is about 35 parts per thousand. about . . . . . . (3.5%) " (Google)

Temperature therefore not far from 273K.
