Marine water fishes will not be able to survive in fresh water because marine water fishes are adapted to live in salt water conditions. If they are shifted to freshwater, the process of osmoregulation in them will be affected. Due to the internal high salt condition in fish, the freshwater will come inside the body of fish causing fishes to swell up, ultimately bursting.
