A whole lot!

There is a huge quantity of gold is seawater. But it's distributed widely - across all the oceans of all the world - and is incorporated on the atomic level. That makes it very, very hard to separate out. No one has demonstrated that it can be done economically.

The concentration of gold in seawater varies from place to place, and ranges between 5 to 50 ppt (about .005 to .05 tonnes (5 to 50 kg) per km3)

Given that the volume of all the seas is about 1.37 billion km3 The total amount of gold in all the seas is about 7 to 75 billion kg.
