Galvanic voltage for zinc=1,25
Galvanic voltage for alu=0,75

This means zinc is more protective for anodic purposes. Iron is 0,65
This means alu cannot prtect iron but can protect brass and inox.
The votage difference is high enough to cause galvanic reaction among zinc and alu. Therefore do not use both of them at the same time.

Anodes of either material are fine for saltwater environments. Mixing them probably not a good idea, however.
