Once you remove an object from seawater, the O2 allows oxidation
to occur, which promoted cupric oxide to form (corroded brass).
Your best bet would be to drop it in a muriatic bath to clean off the corrosion.
Then stick it in fresh water and see if you can leech out the rest of the salts.
Let this soak for a long time...
