Contractile vacuole helps in removal of excess water from the body. Marine fish are exposed to high salinity. So, there is no need to remove excess water as osmotic balance between the surrounding water and fish’s body is maintained. Fresh water fish are exposed to low salt concentration. So, they require contractile vacuoles to remove excess water.
