ways of survival of marine animals to the salinity of seawater?

    Evolution has given marine fish the ability to inhabit salt water. Marine fish can excrete excess salt. Chloride cells in their gills create an enzyme, gill Na+/K+ATPase, that rids their plasma of any excess salt that builds up within their bodies from the seawater. Part of the energy that a fish expends is used to get rid of salt. Their kidneys also selectively filter out divalent ions, which are then excreted by the fish.
