What do you think of the addition of coral reefs and the re-weighting of the exam? Also, what is meant by the part of rule 3 before 3a? Does it practically mean that marine and estuary systems are tested instead of freshwater?

I think recently killed coral was on the ID list before. Having an accurate salinometer got nerfed, as you get 5% for just bringing in the salinometer. I think that section just describes the overall topic(mar+est) of the event.

Do you know if there's anything special they want you to know about the Chesapeake Bay? It seems awfully specific....

I honestly don't know. It is an estuary, maybe as an example for test writers?

i think they simply used that as an example of question scenarios.. it is a very important estuarine ecosystem facing ecological damage, right?
like questions could be a scenario from inter-coastal water way at isle of palms or something like that?

For the organisms listed, is it assumed that we have to know everything about them for div. C?

Based off the rules it says "Participants are also expected to know the general ecology, life cycles, and feeding habits of the following
organisms (note: spp. is an abbreviation for multiple species)", which basically means everything
