(a) The sea water fish is also a salt water fish. So, when it is transferred to fresh water, osmosis occurs. Water enters the cell, diluting the salt concentration inside, resulting in bursting of the cell. So, unfortunately, cell will stop working and the fish will die.
(b) When the fish is taken to sea water, the reverse process occurs. Water comes out of the cell due to the process of exosmosis, disrupting the cell. So, it leads to dehydration of fish and ultimately death of the fish.
