Similarly, the coelenterates, which are mostly marine, and the echinoderms, which are restricted to the sea, are devoid of excretory organs. These marine invertebrates, being isosmotic to their habitat, do not need organs of water and ionic balance. Discharge of nitrogenous wastes and ionic regulation are carried out through the general body surface.
