a question about protien skimmers

Ok so I'm learning about salt water tanks and I want to convert my 16 bow fresh to a salt tank. Now I'm wondering is it 100 percent needed to have a protien skimmer? Cause the ones I've seen go for like 100 bucks. I can get lights live rock sand and salt but idk about the skimmer. Any advice would be great thanks so much
