I can't find a reference, but it would be very surprising for aqueous NaCl to have much negative magnetoresistance. Are you using an electromagnet to apply the field? If so, there will be Joule heating in its coils. Unless you're very careful, the high-field measurements will be at higher temperature. The conductivity of saltwater goes up as the temperature rises.
