Carbon in a salt water tank can be debated. It can remove a lot a trace elements. This can be a problem if you want to keep coral and other inverts, but not as much with only fish.

Carbon will benefit salt water in the same way that it benefits fresh though.

It's always a good idea to run carbon to keep your water clear and incase something toxic releases in your tank. Just make sure to change it once every few weeks so it doesn't leech.
