All freshwater ultimately comes from precipitation of atmospheric water vapor, reaching inland lakes, rivers, and groundwater bodies directly, or after melting of snow or ice (see hydrologic cycle).

Access to fresh water is a critical issue for the survival of many species, including humans, especially in desert or otherwise arid areas. See water resources.

Even on a ship or island in the ocean, there can be a "water shortage", which means a shortage of fresh water. Seawater is undrinkable directly.

For fish, it strongly matters how much dissolved sodium chloride the water they live in has. Most species cannot live in both fresh and salt water, though some species move between the two. Salt water fish have access to an abundance of salt, and try to get as much salt out of their body as possible, while trying to keep the water. Fresh water fish do the opposite: they have too much water, and too little salt.
