Yeah, if you leave it in salt water for long. If it's on a trailered
boat, say, or a piece of fishing gear, and it's never exposed for more
than a day at a time, it will be all right. Just rinse it off with
fresh water when it comes out of the salt.
Brass-to-brass threads are a bad deal in any environment except a dry
interior. I think the trick there is just to exclude water, like with
a Teflon-based liquid pipe sealer.
If the OP wants to know what happens to brass if it's left in salt
water, I have a few examples in my junk pile. <g> It turns pinkish-red
as the zinc leaches out, and the remaining metal is like a very
fragile copper sponge.

I don't like brass in salt water, but if I had to do this I'd use Duralac Paste as jointing compound.
It can be a little difficult to find, I suspect it's chock full of carcinogans
