As long as you are taking them from freshwater then they are right to go straight in the tank. Otherwise its a matter of taking a sample of the water from the river and testing the salt levels with a hydrometer and make the water in the tank they are going into about the same.

once they are home and alive its a matter of over a few days bringing the salt levels in the tank back to the level you want it at.
