If you have marine tank using the 'berlin' filtration standard then you do need a protein skimmer. However you would not need a powerful external filter with biological media in it.
Other marine filtration methods vary as to the requirement of a protein skimmer.

If you have a freshwater system you generally don't need a protein skimmer.
