The origin to salting fish is as a food preservation because most fungus or bacteria cannot survive on highly salted environment. Fish salting use mineral salt which mostly consist of sodium chloride, NaCl. 
Salt is essential to animal live, but too much of it can proven to be hazard to health. Salted fish, chinese style has been classified by International Agency for Research Cancer, IARC as known carcinogenic to human (Group 1) meaning there are enough evidence to conclude that it can cause cancer in humans. Everything has it limits, for those salted fish lover, try go easy with the food and don't over consume.
