Is fresh sea water directly from the beach safe for water changes?

Since I keep a Bimac which is native, and was raised in CA. I was wondering if I can use water from the same beach which he was raised (at octopets) for my normal water changes, since it is free and readily available?

Most people who use seawater do filter it. Why don't you phone Octopets and see what how they process their seawater? Maybe it would be quite simple.

I also know of one research lab that takes a boat (proper term is research vessel, I guess) and goes out about 8 miles to make sure they're getting uncontaminated and uniform seawater. Others places simply pipe it in from where they sit on the coast.
